The two year IB preparation program called “Power Pack” includes intensive and rewarding study in Mathematics, English, Science, Geography, History and French. These courses provide an excellent foundation for further study in the regular academic or IB program. While Power Pack students are asked to explore and experience matters beyond the regular curriculum, students are not evaluated in a penalizing manner.
