Our Senior School is designed for 16 – 19 year olds.

AISPP is already a candidate school for the Primary Years Program, PYP, and has applied to the International Baccalaureate for the Middle Years and the Diploma Years Programs, MYP & DP program candidacy.

We are pursuing authorisation as an IB World School over the coming years.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students.

Australian teachers generally believe that the DP provides better university preparation than the Australian Curriculum. Additional benefits of the DP curriculum included real-world application, greater depth, clear global dimensions and the development of intercultural understanding.

The Diploma Programme (DP) is a two-year international education programme that prepares students age 16–19 years for success going into, and throughout, university. The DP offers a holistic approach to teaching and learning with a keen focus on developing intercultural awareness. Students learn to explore and understand the world around them through inquiry, critical thinking and open-mindedness.

Why the DP?

Parents who want the best possible education for their children choose the DP because it offers:

  • a challenging academic curriculum that serves as outstanding preparation for university and higher education
  • a student-centred approach to teaching, focused on developing students intellectually, emotionally physically and socially, as opposed to preparation for test-taking only
  • a focus on international-mindedness, compassion, and understanding intercultural differences
  • respected, reliable and world-renowned academic preparation
  • Universities regularly cite DP students as the best prepared for higher education.
  • DP graduates excel at university and often begin their studies with advanced standing
