We are proud to be one of a small number of schools offering the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme in Melbourne. In line with the International Baccalaureate mission statement, Oakleigh Grammar values education that goes beyond academic development. The school encourages students to develop awareness beyond the individual and his or her immediate community.
As an International Baccalaureate World School, we have access to the best educational resources to further enhance and support our student learning. The program has a focus on the ‘learner’ and the development of ‘learning skills’. Coupled with high international assessment standards, this encourages students to reflect on their learning and performance.
Authorisation as an International Baccalaureate World School ensures strong accountability to best-practise teaching and learning from within this framework. Students learn best when their lessons have context and are connected to their lives and experience of the world.
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme encourages both personal and academic achievement. This challenges students to excel in both their studies and personal development.
Given the opportunity to study the Middle Years Programme from Years 6 to 10 provides students with outstanding preparation for VCE studies.
