Welcome to the IB Diploma Program at RNS. All students participate in a two-year Pre-IB Program (Grades 9 and 10) and the formal Diploma Program (Grades 11 and 12).
The IB program engages students in a rigorous and broadly based pre-collegiate curriculum during the Grade 11 and 12 years. This program maintains the strengths of a liberal arts curriculum and incorporates the best educational practices of several different countries. In addition to the required six subject area courses, all diploma students complete an interdisciplinary course called Theory of Knowledge; they write an Extended Essay with original research, and participate in 150 hours of CAS (creativity, action, service).
