The IB Curriculum is prepared in order to encourage students to acquire the bases of critical thinking, intellectual perspective and intercultural sagacity. The aims are to educate intellectual and emotional young people to think critically, to ask profoundly, and to behave peacefully on the basis of the respect for the societies, individuals, cultures, environment, world and life. In order to achieve these aims, methods and strategies of the IBDP curriculum and assessment are constituted by the cooperation of the leading international institutions, organizations, schools and governmental offices. These programmes lead the students all over the world to be active, sensitive and lifelong learners. The IBDP presents abroad, congruent, balanced, active and actual alternative curriculum for students. Additionally, IBDP curriculum is not only designed to give an academic education but also admits and evaluates the reality that a student needs to have an individual improvement in a group and society. Therefore, it offers an education depending on the solidarity and unity; it provides a constructive range and deepness. Extracurricular activities are as significant as the ones included in the curriculum. IBDP students are encouraged and conducted by well-qualified teachers and advisers, who should uncover and strengthen the potential of students.

       During the two-year programme, IB students study harder than the other students in national curriculum. The programme encourages the students to acquire the inquiry skills. Thus, apart from the courses, they also write an “extended essay”, take “theory of knowledge” class and take part in “CAS activities”. Along with their academic education, they are socially and culturally educated. The programme encourages students to acquire study skills. IBDP students present their works related to IB courses and take IB examinations in May of the IBDP Year 2.

       On the basis of IBDP six courses are enclosed around a central core. Students have to study and successfully complete “Extended essay”, “Theory of knowledge” and “CAS” which are at the centre of the diploma programme model as well as the subjects elected amongst the six groups.

       IB students are supposed to study a subject from each group. They have to study at least three High Level and three Standard Level courses. They study 240 hours for High Level courses and 150 hours for Standard Level courses.
