The IB curriculum comprises courses that are highly important for the intellectual development of young people, their holistic education and general knowledge. In addition to the main natural and social science courses, the IB Diploma Programme contains courses which are important for 21st-century education and offer skills that will help students excel in their academic and professional careers.

Apart from the main subjects, IBDP focuses on languages so as to enhance the students’ prospects for studying abroad and achieving international success.

Quality education is distinguished by the diversity, relevance and value of the subjects offered by the school and the fact that they are presented in an interactive, inspiring and innovative manner; this is precisely what the International School achieves owing to its teaching methods and content provided.

Studies in language and literature

For students interested in languages and linguistics, the Diploma Programme offers courses which delve into the literature and culture of English and Serbian. This is a great opportunity for future linguists to expand their knowledge when it comes to their language of choice.

English Language and Literature represents a balanced amalgamation of literary interpretation and critical thinking skills. As such, it forms a basis for a broader study of not only works of literature but also non-literary texts. Elements such as context in social, cultural and temporal sense are explored in relation to literature. A varied choice of works is covered which allows the students to gain competence in critical literacy, analysis of literary and non-literary texts as well as a wide understanding of different cultures and intercultural communication. Additionally, the students’ presentation skills are developed and, by the end of the course, they will be able to present their ideas more efficiently and effectively.

Sciences

Without sciences there is no civilizational progress! Subjects such as chemistry, physics, and biology are considered general knowledge and are imperative for academics, while IT skills are key to 21stcentury professions.

Computer Science is an experimental science that tries to study computers and computing, based on mathematics and theoretical and algorithmic foundation. Students can learn a variety of things such as hardware and software, how to process information, logic, and use of logic, programming languages such as Java and Python, many sorting and searching algorithms, and many more things. Computer Science is a perfect balance between the theoretical field of mathematics and the practical field of engineering.
