There are over 200 IB Schools in India. What makes us special at DSB is our commitment to the IB philosophy and delivering the IB Diploma Programme in the spirit in which it is intended. The IB is an inclusive organisation and the IB Diploma Programme is developed to provide enriching learning opportunities for all students - not just the academic elite. Whether a student scores 45 points or 14 - the learning journey of the IBDP will set them up for success in life. We believe this because the IBDP is a globally recognised, pre-university course. Research suggests that IBDP students have numerous learning outcomes that are superior to students who study various national curricula. The IBDP offers its students a much greater educational emphasis on individual initiative, personal responsibility, and creative and critical thinking, which are all skills with increasing importance in the modern workplace.

The IBDP is an academically demanding programme in which students select one subject from each of the key subject areas. The six subject areas are listed below with the subjects offered at DSB. We are proud of our rich offer, but in accommodating the limits of our small size, we focus on ensuring we offer subjects that are necessary for university studies. Our IB Diploma subject offering ensures students have the requisite subjects for entry into any leading university course internationally.

The six subject groups with the subjects offered at DSB are:

  • Group 1: Studies in Language and Literature: English A and German A.
  • Group 2: Language Acquisition: English B, German B, German ab initio, French B and Hindi B.
  • Group 3: Individuals and Societies: Economics, History and Geography.
  • Group 4: Sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Design and Technology.
  • Group 5: Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches, Applications and Interpretation.
  • Group 6: The Arts: Visual Arts.

All subjects are offered at Higher and Standard Level (HL & SL) except German ab initio and Mathematics Applications and interpretation which are only offered at SL.

Instead of Visual Arts students may pick a second subject from group 2,3,4 subject areas.

Students must pick three subjects at HL and three at SL.

Additionally, all students study Theory of Knowledge (TOK), embark on an independent research project, the Extended Essay and commit to the Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) programme.

All students are enrolled on the IB Diploma in line with the IBO guidance - but may have the option to drop to being course candidates if it seems more appropriate to them at a later date.

We are truly an International School and we are uniquely placed to promote a sense of 'International-Mindedness' in our students. We are proud of our German heritage and our strength in teaching languages which enhances intercultural learning and lays a great foundation for the Diploma Programme (DP). At DSB, we continually celebrate the diversity amongst our staff and our student body.

The IBDP is an extremely demanding course, and we are rightly proud of the support structures that we have in place for our students. We have small class sizes ensuring, more opportunities for one-on-one time with teachers. All students have a personal mentor and weekly IB Skills lessons. Their journey from choosing university placements to sending off their applications is individually supported by our excellent university guidance counsellor and her company The Red Pen. At every stage of the way we ensure that our curriculum supports the mission of the IB and the development of the IB Learner profile.

For an understanding of the pathways open to students after school please contact Birgit Bery, our University Guidance Counsellor birgitbery@dsbindia.com.
