The IB Diploma Programme is a comprehensive course of study that combines a range of subjects.

MLC School consistently achieves at the highest level internationally in the IB. The 2017 IB cohort delivered an outstanding result, with five students attaining a perfect score of 45, placing them among the top academic achievers worldwide. There were a total of eight perfect scores achieved in NSW and five of those were from MLC School.

MLC School has been an IB World School since 1999. This means that we:

  • Share the mission and commitment of the IB to quality international education
  • Play an active and supporting role in the worldwide community of IB schools
  • Share their knowledge and experience in the development of IB programmes
  • Are committed to the professional development of teachers

The IB Diploma Programme is a comprehensive and rigorous pre-university course of study for motivated students that combines a range of subjects with a program of:

  • Research through the Extended Essay
  • Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS)
  • Theory of Knowledge (TOK), a course designed for students to be able to ask, ‘How do we know what we know?’

The IB Diploma Programme is based on the IB Organisation’s Mission Statement: ‘The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.’ Students select one subject from each of five different discipline areas as well as a sixth that may be an Arts discipline or another subject from Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies or Sciences. This ensures a breadth of experience in Languages, Humanities, Experimental Sciences and Mathematics, a key feature of the Diploma that makes it different from the HSC.
