IB As our school continues to grow, we keep adding to our repertoire of courses. In addition to SAT Prep, Association International School in 2015 took the decision to apply to become an IB World school offering the IB Diploma. This is a two-year process that involves a feasibility study, the formulation of an action plan and the application to become a candidate school. We were successful in that and in September 2015, we became an IB candidate school, pursuing authorization to become an IB World school. The last year has been a great learning curve, readying ourselves for the Authorization Application which we sent in November. We now await a verification visit in February to be granted the status. We have worked hard on our IB curriculum, infrastructure as well as policies and handbooks to ensure that your child will have the best academic experience pursuing the IB Diploma Programme with us.
