SFLSID Is Now Officially an IB World School
Fully Authorized to Deliver IB Diploma Programme Starting September 2018
“I am pleased to inform you that your school has been authorized.” （我非常高兴地通知贵校已获IBDP授权。）
On April5th，2018, Shanghai Foreign Language School International Division (SFLSID) was notified by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) that it has successfully passed the final verification and been authorized to deliver Diploma Programme.
In July 2016, SFLSID applied for IB candidacy. In September 2017, SFLSID went through the consultation visit and received positive feedback and recommendations from IBO experts. SFLSID then pursued an accelerated authorization timeline and received the final verification visit by IBO experts in March 2018. The three IBO experienced educators spoke highly of SFLSID preparation for the authorization after they had met with different members of the school community (head of SFLSID, SFLSID management team, IB coordinator, IB teachers, first group of potential IBDP students and their parents), evaluated the school facilities, observed classes, and checked DP curriculum construction and the related 5 main policies during the two visits.
The acquisition of the IBO authorization in less than two years is totally attributed to SFLS’s rich experience in international education, first-class teaching facilities, full commitment from leadership team, hard work of faculty and staff involved, outstanding performance of each and every student from the pre-DP class, and active cooperation from their parents.
Upon its establishment in 1999, SFLSID, following SFLS mission and unique academic rigor, has integrated leading educational philosophy and curriculums worldwide and provided targeted curriculums to students of various needs for future education. DP will furnish students with premium international education resources, help students to excel in their studies and in their personal development, and offer them the best preparation for university studies and life beyond.
Meanwhile, SFLSID is a candidate of IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) preparing for IBO authorization. Currently, SFLSID offers complete MYP curriculum to students of Grades 6&7. Being an IBDP World School, SFLSID has become part of a community of educators and will be growing and developing constantly.
