Through its comprehensive curriculum and extra-curricular activities, Craighouse School complies with national Chilean requirements as well as offering the three International Baccalaureate Organisation Programmes. Together with the Craighouse Formative Curriculum, the Academic Curriculum aims to develop our pupils’ ability to express emotions, critical and reflective thinking, personal autonomy, responsibility, and self-esteem.
The International Baccalaureate programmes (ibo.org) provide us with a platform for pupils to be truly engaged with their own learning as inquirers. The IB programmes put - the learner at the centre and engage them to think widely and deeply about things from diverse perspectives. The programmes aim to prepare children and young people to reflect on the consequences of knowledge and actions and in this way inspire them to do their best to improve the world. Craighouse School began its affiliation with the International Baccalaureate in 1994 when the school became authorized to implement the Diploma Programme, a rigorous course of study leading to a recognized certification of excellence for high school pupils. Since then, Craighouse School has become a IB World Continuum school having also earned approval to implement the Primary Years Programme (Prekinder to Year 4) and the Middle Years Programme (Years 5 through 9).
