WHAT AGE IS SUITABLE TO LEARN IB?

The International Baccalaureate is one of the outstanding academic programs around the world. Students in many countries choose the IB programmes to shorten the distance to prestigious universities.

PRESTIGE PROGRAM – RIGORIOUS STANDARDS

Not only prestigious, IB is also known as a challenging academic program, especially Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP) levels. In addition to doing many in-depth researches, students require to develop a worldview, personal values and advanced skills, demonstrated in specialized essays, diverse subjects, co-curricular activities and hands-on projects. Building this foundation takes many years, and therefore, the earlier you learn IB, the higher your chances of success. That is the reason why parents around the world want their children to study at an IB Continuum School, which is authorized to deliver all three programs: PYP – MYP – DP. In Vietnam, there are only 6 schools that meet this condition. Each program has a completely different theory, content framework and teaching method, built on the psychology, physical condition, demand, potential and values of different age group.

THE EARLIER YOU START – THE BIGGER SUCCESS YOU ACHIEVE

The PYP is tailored for young learners aged 3 to 12 years. This early start is advantageous as it lays the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. The PYP focuses on the holistic development of the child both in the classroom and in the world outside, encouraging students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others. The transdisciplinary framework of the PYP integrates subject areas into a cohesive learning experience, making it ideal for fostering curiosity and inquiry from a young age. Concentrate on fostering a love of learning because it will be the most important factor in students’ future endeavors, particularly when they are moving up to the MYP or DP, when knowledge levels are higher and a love of learning will be beneficial, regardless of level. Along with that, building social and emotional skills for students at this level also helps them develop emotional intelligence (EQ) early, an important factor that helps students succeed in school and in life. Therefore, letting your child learn IB at this age will create a solid foundation to prepare for them in their next journey. At SNA IB Continuum School, educational experts offer a unique PYP curriculum with age-appropriate subjects to encourage curiosity and self-discovery. With many diverse co-curricular activities such as visiting outstanding works of architecture, history, volunteering… students not only open up their worldview but also build compassion and a spirit of sharing from an early age.

INTEGRATING EARLY – EMPOWERING SENSE OF SELF

Joining a school is a daunting process for many students, they need time to adapt and integrate – being an international school certainly has its advantages. Open-mindedness helps students feel welcomed and comfortable to join the community. However, language and differences in culture and lifestyle are still a challenge for students, especially during puberty or near the end of the school year, when students have become accustomed to the environment and routine. Therefore, the earlier they join an IB learning environment, the easier they will adapt and become global citizens. Hence, the most appropriate age to enroll in an IB school is from primary to early middle school (MYP) level. At SNA IB Continuum School, The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16, a period marked by significant cognitive, emotional, and social development. This age group benefits immensely from the MYP’s emphasis on connecting classroom learning to the real world.
