As part of the International Baccaleaureate (IB) continuum of international education, Harare International School (HIS) is proud to have an authorized Diploma Programme (DP).
The three IB programmes (PYP, MYP, DP) share a common philosophy and a commitment to a high quality, international education that HIS believes promotes our ability to thrive and reach for excellence. Across the continuum, our teachers are committed to the principles of an IB education, promoting inquiry-based teaching strategies and conceptual-based learning that support the IB Learner Profile and foster students’ growth in the Approaches to Learning (AtLs).
As the culminating program in the continuum, the DP is designed for students in grades 11 and 12. It is a comprehensive, two-year program that uses a standardized curriculum within the IB framework. As with the PYP and the MYP, DP students are at the center of the program model and, as such, we recognize their importance in the learning process through our instructional strategies.
