IB Five-Year Programme Evaluation Success!

We are delighted to announce that NOIC ACADEMY received an evaluation report from the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).  NOIC Academy has successfully passed its first ‘Five-Year Programme Evaluation’. In 2015 we have been authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Program and have been a designated IB World School. NOIC Academy offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

We are proud to announce that we will continue to be authorized to offer the IBDP programme.  According to our evaluation report, there are no ‘matters to be addressed’. The report highly commends the school for taking proactive measures to implement IB learning methods, fostering an international perspective, and supporting the implementation of IBDP in all aspects. The results are extremely positive, and reflect well on our learning community. This IB Evaluation Report is indicative of the hard work, talent and professionalism of all NOIC faculty and staff.

In order to ensure the operational quality of IB World Schools, each IB World School is regularly evaluated to ensure that the standards and practices of its IB programme(s) are being maintained. Evaluation takes place at least once every five years. The evaluation processes include preparation and submission of a large number of self-study materials, review and evaluation of NOIC Academy by the IBO evaluation team, and final reporting.

The report successfully identifies many of our strengths and accomplishments. It provides us with some useful recommendations to help us further focus on the growth and development of our school as we move into our next phase of development, review and action planning. We have been conscientious and consistent and will continue to be committed to developing and implementing the IBDP programme which has unique academic rigour and an emphasis on students’ personal development.
