Grades 6-8 see a continuation of the programme established in primary with the exception that subject specialists are used in all subjects. Students continue to present their work at the end of each unit in the form of unit presentations and assessments are taken in all subjects every nine weeks.

In grades 9-10 the students are engaged in a IBDP preparation programme. This is a combination of IB ‘taster’ courses in social sciences, combined with preparatory work in all other subjects. The courses are demanding and rewarding and incorporate many of the elements that students will encounter in the DP programme. The nature of the 9-10 courses means that Evo students can keep elements of their lower secondary learning experience whilst being thoroughly prepared for the DP in 11-12.

International Baccalaureate


Evolution International School is an authorized school* for the Diploma Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. 


* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

**Mission Statement from the IB


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. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Research suggests that there are many benefits to choosing the Diploma Programme (DP). The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.


What the DP offers students

Through the DP, schools are able to develop students who:

  • Have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge

  • Flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically

  • Study at least two languages

  • Excel in traditional academic subjects

  • Explore the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique theory of knowledge course (TOK).


For its first year of DP the school is offering the following subjects:


Group 1: Studies in language and literature 

English Language  (SL/HL)


Group 2: Language Acquisition 

Arabic B (SL)

French B (SL/HL)

French ab initio* (SL)


*Language ab initio is a language acquisition course for students with no prior experience of the target language, or for those students with very     limited previous experience.


Group 3: Individuals and societies

Business and management 

Information technology in a global society (ITGS) 


Group 4: Sciences 





Group 5: Mathematics 

Mathematics application and interpretations (SL)

Mathematics analysis and approaches (HL) 


Group 6: The arts 

Visual arts 


In the future the school is considering offering more subjects to fulfil the learning needs of its growing student body. 

Based on the interests of our current student body, the school is considering offering some of the following subjects: German ab initio, Economics, Psychology, Global Politics and History along with the current subject offerings.
