The Middle Years Programme is for students from 11-16 years old and provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and become critical and reflective thinkers.
International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme
The Career-related Programme (CP) combines academic subjects with a student's chosen career interests to help prepare them to follow their career pathway. At KIS Bangkok, it is for students in Grades 11-12 that have a strong interest in Sustainable Leadership, Sustainable Business, Art, or Design. Students take university-level courses and can earn university credits as a part of their high school studies.
The IB learner profile is a key component of all IB programmes. It promotes attitudes and characteristics in students that develop international-mindedness. Students are encouraged to recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet and to help create a better and more peaceful world.
The learner profile provides long-term vision for education and is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of the entire school community-students, teachers, administrators, and parents, uniting them in a common purpose of international-mindedness and global citizenship.
