Final grade: wonderful!

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programm (IBDP) is an internationally acknowledged degree allowing students to attend universities within Austria and abroad. This two-year programme aims to produce reflective and responsible young people that contribute to the peaceful formation of our society.
Together with Freie Waldorfschule Wien West, Montessori Campus Wien is developing a progressive curriculum for 16- to 19-year-olds within the framework of the IB Diploma Programme. In a two-year applications procedure, the fulfilment of all critera by a school is evaluated. Worldwide, there are 2.400 schools that offer the IB. In Austria, there are 7 schools, of which two are public.

IB-schools worldwide follow the same curriculum. Students select one subject from each of five groups: first and second language, social studies, natural sciences, maths and as 6th subject one may choose either arts or one subject of the other 5 groups. Our IB coordinator Jutta Zopf-Klasek will gladly advise on all possibilities.
In addition, there are three aspects that form the core of the IBDP, which distinguish it from other curriculums and make the IBDP unique. The three core elements of the IBDP are:


1) Extended Essay
An independent research project for which each students selects a problem from his or her personal field of interests, carries out research on this subject with the support of a supervisor, and writes a 4000 word essay about it. “Extended Essays” offer challenges to the sudents that correspond to their scientific abilities and a sound preparationfor scientific work at the university.

2) Theory of Knowledge (TOK)
TOK is intended to encourage students to reflect on their knowledge by investigating various fields of knowledge and understandings. TOK supports another educational goal, namely to educate curious people with a comprehensive, well-rounded education.

3) Creativity, Action and Service (CAS)
This is about the attainment of personal goals and empirical learning by artistic, athletic and social activities, which in turn increases intrinsic motivation, social commitment and supports the emotional development. Music, arts and theatre grant lots of opportunities for self-expression.


The final grade for a subject consists of the following components:

Portfolio work during the last two years

At the end of the 2 years programme written exams in each subject take place and are externally assessed.

Exceptions: Visual Arts. There is no written exam, but an examiner comes to the school and questions and assesses students over the course of one hour with regard to their works.
