    The IB Diploma Program

    Pinewood has offered the IB Diploma Programme since 1999. The language of instruction is English and all classes are taught by experienced teachers, who regularly attend IB teacher workshops in order to keep up with the developments in their subject area. Pinewood IB classes are small in size, allowing students to receive individual attention.

    IB students at Pinewood have the choice between the following two courses of study:

    Full IB Diploma Programme: IB students complete the Creativity-Action-Service component of the IB Diploma Programme by participating in the school's After-School Activities program, school-sponsored field trips and community service projects.
