Diploma Pathways

Woodstock School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, and offers the Diploma Programme (DP) in Grades 11 and 12. Our educational vision holds that the purpose of education is to elicit the greatness that resides within each and every person.


We believe that great human beings live with compassion, humility, grit and creativity. As such, our set curriculum includes carefully designed learning experiences that extend well beyond the purely academic sphere; to development in our students a profound sense of self, healthy interpersonal relationships, a deep sense of global citizenship, and the skills to survive and thrive in today’s world.


Woodstock School values education more as the transformation of personal understanding and the collaborative construction of meaning, and less as the transmission of knowledge and rote memorization of facts. This is in complete alignment with the IB DP, which aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students with character. We need students who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real world, complex and unpredictable situations.
