NEIL ARMSTRONG SCHOOL is an applicant* category school for the DIPLOMA program and is seeking authorization to become an IB World School. They are schools that share a common philosophy: a commitment to the rigorous, quality international education that NEIL ARMSTRONG SCHOOL believes is important for students.
NEIL ARMSTRONG SCHOOL is in the process of licensing the Diploma program with the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). The Diploma program is a course designed for young people between the ages of 16 and 19, which provides students with the tools to better approach university life and encourages the acquisition of an international mindset. At the end of the two-year program, the student has the skills to adapt to any culture and situation, is not afraid to face challenges and propose ideas, always validating his or her point of view with intelligent and reasonable arguments. The curriculum designed for our school includes the following subjects:
GROUP 1 Literature in Spanish. Upper level.
GROUP 2 English. Upper level.
GROUP 3 History upper level. Information Technology in the Global Society (ITGS). Intermediate level.
GROUP 4 Biology. Intermediate level.
GROUP 5 Mathematics: analysis and approaches.
The program has three compulsory elements as a common axis:
– The MONOGRAPHY, which is an independent work where they delve into a specific topic and must demonstrate their research spirit.
– Attend the THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE course, where they will reflect on the nature of knowledge, its types and forms.
– Participate in CAS (Creativity, Action and Service), executing concrete projects outside the classroom, which should generate significant learning.
Only schools authorized by the IB Organization may offer any of its four academic programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) or the Professional Orientation Programme (POP). Applicant school status does not guarantee that the school will be approved. For more information about the IB and its programs, visit http://www.ibo.org.
