The IB Programme at Kenner offers a specialized enriched curriculum unique in Peterborough which is internationally-minded and interdisciplinary.
The IB is a KPR Board-supported programme and students are guaranteed busing if they live within Peterborough County.
What does an IB Diploma consist of?
Students take a critical thinking course called the Theory of Knowledge which addresses the question “How do you know what you know?”
The IB features an enhanced community leadership component service called Creativity Action and Service (CAS) of approximately 150 hours.
With support from specially-trained faculty, students write a mini-thesis of 4000 words called the Extended Essay in a subject matter of the students own design.
IB stands for International Baccalaureate, a challenging academic program for students in grade 11 and 12.
The IB philosophy supports the idea of academic roundedness. As such, there are IB courses in 6 subject areas: English, French, Humanities, Sciences, Mathematics and Arts.
