The IB Diploma is an internationally recognized credential program of studies which opens doors for our Surrey students, hones their critical thinking skills,  and promotes global citizenship.  Often providing more opportunities to compete for major scholarships both locally and internationally, the IB diploma is both enriched and accelerated with many students receiving credits for first year courses or going directly to second year at universities, which can considerably save both time and money for our students.  The Advanced Placement International Certificate, French Baccalaureate, Welsh Baccalaureate and Cambridge Pre-University diplomas are similar to the IB Diploma academic credentials. I believe the IB is unique in educating the whole student, developing the capacity for inquiry, research and problem solving as well as essential skills for communication and collaboration. Semiahmoo IB has a proven record of outstanding results and university and scholarship placement. IB Diploma programme provides personal and academic challenge, supportive and nurturing environment, a unified program of studies, an interdisciplinary approach, a global education emphasis and university level preparation. Semi IB teachers are trained by IB; many of them are IB examiners in different subject areas. Our IB students leave the IB Diploma programme prepared for second year studies in the most rigorous university programs.
