The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme


The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB) has accredited International School as an IB World School under the number 062142, thus officially authorising International School to implement the globally recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme.

In this way, International School provides our students with the opportunity to finish Year 3 and 4 according to the IB Diploma program, and obtain an internationally recognised IB Diploma and certificates.

International School, as an IB World School, helps its students enrol in the best world universities with little difficulty, thanks to its diverse curriculum, a program that covers diverse topics and interests, and an approach that teaches students to respect diversity, develop critical thinking, nurture their curiosity, successfully solve complex problems, and encourages lifelong learning.

Comprehensive curriculum

Designed as a combination of compulsory and elective courses/subjects, the IB Diploma Programme helps students acquire comprehensive knowledge and guides them toward wholesome personality development.

In this way, students nurture a holistic approach to education by learning both sciences and humanities, as well as foreign languages, and moreover, they are allowed to choose a subject/course within the group that best suits their preferences and talents.

Internationally recognised IB Diploma and certificates

The IB Diploma programme allows students to obtain a prestigious IB diploma (The Diploma of the International Baccalaureate), which will open the doors of the world’s best universities.

Students who opt for the IB Diploma program at International School can also acquire individual certificates for different courses/subjects in the program (Diploma Programme Course Results / DP Course Results) if they have not collected enough points for an IB Diploma.

Doors of the world’s best universities are wide open to you

The IB Diploma programme is very diverse, and as such, helps students who are yet undecided on what they want to study to make the right decision. It focuses on the development of critical thinking, digital competencies and psychosocial skills, not only through the official curriculum, but also through participation in various extracurricular activities.

Mathematics, which is in most cases, an integral element of entrance exams for universities around the world, is a compulsory subject in the IB Diploma Program. For this reason, IB students do extremely well in entrance exams for university science programs.

The right choice for young people who want to study in America

The IB Diploma Programme is the first choice of students who see their future in one of the universities in the United States.

This does not mean that students with IB diplomas can ONLY continue their education in America. On the contrary – the IB diploma opens the doors of all world universities, and is becoming increasingly sought-after in Europe and Asia.

English-only programme

In the IB Diploma programme, the curriculum is in English, and students can choose whether they want to add Serbian Language and Literature among their courses, and thus nurture the culture and tradition of their native country.

It has been proved that IB students have better performance

IB students apply to more than 3,300 higher education institutions in 90 countries every year, and available research shows that students who complete this program are more likely to pursue higher education than those who attended other programs.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum

Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
