Hi ANChan59,
Besides, what's your comments/ impressions on SPCC's IB course? Any differences between DBS and SPCC's IB course?


It's unfair to comment on both schools as they are new in IBDP, and SPCC just start the pre-IB program this Sept. I just share what I know so far, may be other parents can share their experience or thoughts.

  • Both schools offer IBDP bridging program or pre-IB program as transition between the new 334 system and IBDP, it's a good move for students to fit in IBDP and get better grades in Grad 11 & 12 (not the same as LPCUWC).
  • Both schools are picky to recruit suitable students to take the course. I talked to different IB admission officers of both schools. They have some criteria in mind and not just academic and interview performance. (I know in DBS, some top 10 students also turned down by IB as teachers thought that they will do much better in the NSS system.)
  • The board in DBS are right to turn IBDP as co-edu program, but turned down by students and old boys. SPCC will be better in this, as IB need more interactions and exposures, co-edu can be a better environment.
  • Both school invest alot to tailor-made a new building for IBDP, they are whole-hearted to run a good program compariable to LPCUWC in few years time.
  • Teaching staff - DBS have more overseas, experienced teachers, some of them are examiners for IBO, others are local and trained to be IB teachers. I heard some rumour about SPCC only used trained local teachers to run the IBDP, I think it's not true and they are similar to DBS, may be the split not the same.
  • Both schools had the same phenomenon - students and parents are wait & see the results. The 1st intake of DBS IBDP not as good as they expected, after one year, the progress of the students are better than NSS students. So the second intake has relative better average quality.
  • DBS has some overseas students - Germany, UK, China, Taiwan etc, the ratio not like LPCUWC. I am not sure about SPCC. Overseas student need to come to Hk for written exam and interview in DBS.

I hope not to confuse you more......................

Hi ANChan59,

Thank you very much for your valuable sharing. Though my boy is only a F1 student this coming Sept, your first-hand info and sharing are of very good reference to me in the future.

Wish your boy have a wonderful year in IB course in his school!!

I strongly recommend parents to go to http://www.ibo.org/ and search for more info and not just listen to hearesays, even my info.

Different kids and different families have different choices.

For this post, my initial thought was sharing the struggles we had to make the rational and sensible decision - NSS vs IBDP. I won't say I am the expert on this topic, I am only one of parents face the struggle and start to share here (Senior Secondary School sub-forum 高中教育). I can see more to come.

If you search within BK's search engine, you can find some post related to IB, scattered among 'International School 國際學校", "Primary School 小學教育" etc... You can also search in Google or other search engine with keywords IB, IBDP, IB vs AP, IB vs AL... try different combinations, you may find something interesting.

I also received some parents pm me to ask questions or my comment related to some claimed "IB Approach" schools in HK. Personally, I don't like this misleading claims. If they claimed to be IB, must show us they are listed in IBO website, even IB (國際文憑) -PYP (小學課程), or MYP (中學課程) or DP (文憑課程). Don't just claim for years and nothing happen.
