IBDP: International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

At Sreenidhi International School, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) for students aged 16 to 19 helps develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. It is a demanding two-year curriculum placing strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship leading to final examinations and a qualification that is welcomed by leading universities around the world.

It offers a comprehensive curriculum, emphasizes rigor and excellence in academic preparation, promotes international understanding, fosters intellectual inquiry and a humanitarian perspective.
At Sreenidhi International School, students learn more than a collection of facts. The Diploma Programme prepares students for university and encourages them to:
  • Ask challenging questions.
  • Learn how to learn.
  • Develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture.
  • Develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.
The curriculum contains six subject groups together with a core made up of three separate parts. This is illustrated by a hexagon with the three parts of the core at its centre.

Students study six subjects concurrently. These include two languages, one subject from individuals and societies (group 3), one experimental science (group 4), one mathematics subject (group 5), and one subject from the arts (group 6) or another subject from group 1 to 5.
Candidates for the diploma study six subjects selected from the subject groups. Normally three subjects are studied at higher level (courses representing 240 teaching hours), and the remaining three subjects are studied at standard level (courses representing 150 teaching hours). For all three parts of the core extended essay, theory of knowledge and creativity, action, service are compulsory and are central to the philosophy of the Diploma Programme.
  • The extended essay has a prescribed limit of 4,000 words. It offers the opportunity to investigate a topic of individual interest, and acquaints students with the independent research and writing skills expected at university.
  • The interdisciplinary theory of knowledge (TOK) course is designed to provide coherence by exploring the nature of knowledge across disciplines, encouraging an appreciation of other cultural perspectives.
  • Participation in the school’s creativity, action, service (CAS) programme encourages candidates to be involved in artistic pursuits, sports and community service work, thus fostering students’ awareness and appreciation of life outside the academic arena.

When we moved to India and considered few schools for my kids (Sindhu & Vivek Nadipalli), I had a hard time to decide which is the right school for them. I compared Sreenidhi with some other top schools, and decided to admit them in Sreenidhi. Now I feel that I had taken a right decision to choose Sreenidhi, and never regretted about it. I wanted to tell you about it but never had an opportunity to do so. I thought it would be a good time to express my feedback since Sindhu is going to graduate and we lose ties with Sreenidhi. Reasons for appreciation:

1. All the teaching and non-teaching staff are very professional, and take care of the students like their own kids, and take care of the parents like special guests.


2. In case of any information or help, it's instant and accurate.


3. Teachers are very friendly and proficient in their subjects.


4. Open door policy. Somebody could come directly and see any of the staff member without any appointment.


5. Very considerable. Especially, Santosh sir and Shanmugam sir.


Vivek has completed his 10th grade from Sreenidhi International, and now he's studying six year Medicine program in Youngstown State University in Ohio, US. He says that he misses the school.


After Sindhu's 8th Grade we wanted to move Sindhu to a different school because of the commuting from our home. She strongly resisted to move from Sreenidhi. That shows how much she loves her school and what she is doing at the school.

Once I needed something from you and I contacted Santosh sir. Sanotsh sir got it done within no time, and I submitted that letter to the US Institution. Unfortunately, the Institution wanted in a different format. It repeated several times but you both never showed your frustration, and cooperated through the end process. I have no more words to say about Sreenidhi but we are going to miss it once Sindhu graduates. Sorry to lose the connection with you all. Especially, Santosh sir Shanmugam sir and Saraswathi madam.


Please keep up good work.


Yours sincerely,

Upender Nadipalli
