    Pre-IB Chemistry:

    Pre-IB program, is designed to beacademically challengingand an opportunity to show students the many ways chemistry is so important in our everyday lives.Preparing students to face the challenges of scientific reasoning and problem solving, while learninghow to communicate effectively and develop an international mind-set, is what we strive for in our students. Whether the student decides to continue their journey throughchemistryor not, this year we aim to teach them the skillsthey willneed for any future endeavour.

    IB Chemistry 1 & 2

    IB Diploma Program, studied at both the Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL), is designed to be an academically challengingand balanced program. Preparing students to face the challenges of scientific reasoning and problem solving, while learninghow to communicate effectively and develop an international mind-set, is what we strive for in our students.Chemistry is an experimental science. Acquiring practical and investigative skills is as important as academic study.

    The IB SL Chemistry curriculum is equivalent to a college course usually taken by chemistry/science majors during their first year of college. After showing themselves to be qualified on the IB Exam, some students, in their freshman college year, are permitted to undertake upper-level courses in chemistryor to register for courses for which chemistryis a prerequisite.The course includes topics regularly covered in a college chemistrycourse for majors. This differs significantly from a first year high school chemistrycourse with respect to the kind of textbook used, the range and depth of topics covered, the kind of laboratory work done by students, and the time and effort required by the students.
