IB Continuum School                        Admissions open for the academic year 2019-2020
The IB is a non-profit international educational organization established in 1968. It offers 3 programmes of international education that span the primary, middle and secondary school years: Primary Years Programme (PYP) – designed for students aged through 3 to 11, Middle Years Programme (MYP) – for students aged through 11 to 16 and Diploma Programme (DP) – for students aged through 16 to 18. While these programmes follow a logical sequence, each may be offered independently. In all 3 programmes, the IB offers schools with school authorization, curriculum material, assessment procedures, faculty-training workshops, programme evaluation and comprehensive support services in English, French and Spanish.
Students must be enrolled in an IB authorized school to participate in an IB programme. The IB programmes are the core of all curriculum at École Mondiale and students joining early are well prepared for the rigorous IB Diploma programme. Although entry to the IB Diploma is open to all students entering grade 11, the advice is given by the coordinator and teachers as to which course and subject combination is most suitable for each student.
As of September 2017, there were 6,279 programmes being offered worldwide, across 4,773 schools. These schools are known as IB World Schools. Over 800 of these schools are in the Asia Pacific, of which India has 140 IB schools. However, École Mondiale is one of the selected 21 IB World Schools that offer the PYP, MYP and DP programmes.
We would be delighted to meet with you and discuss the details. Please contact our admissions officer on +91 22 26237265 / 66 Or on email at admission@ecolemondiale.org
The IB MYP is recognized by the government as the equivalent to Std 10 in the national system and the IB Diploma is recognized as a pre-university qualification.
Recipients of the IB Diploma are highly thought of by universities around the world. It is considered a rigorous academic programme which prepares students well for university study because of the special programmes in the Diploma such as the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge, and the Creativity, Activity and Service programme.
The school has a nurse on site from 08.00 until 17.00 each day. We also have a doctor on call and hospitals that we have care arrangements with, in the case of an emergency.
The core aspects of the programme are the same all over the world, but there is some flexibility in the programmes allowing for a regional speciality. e.g. students attending École Mondiale have the option of studying Hindi.
Families have the choice of buying lunch at school at the appropriate cafeteria or bringing from home.
The cafeterias are cashless and to ease the purchase of food students are issued a Zeta card which they load money on. The balance on the card is sent by text message to the nominated phone number.
Many activities are available for both primary and secondary students each day both before and after school. These range from sporting to more craft-based activities. With many special events happening in the building e.g. plays, Coffee House and Battlelaureate etc students are never short of activities to join.
The school runs a bus service that covers many areas of Mumbai.
Although English is the medium for learning we support other language development as well. We have classes in Hindi and as the students reach the upper primary, they are also exposed to either French or Spanish. Along with Hindi these options for language learning remain open through the completion of the IB Diploma. In the young years, students solidify their language skills by learning Marathi.
Students from grades 6 to 12 are expected to bring their own laptops to school each day where it will be used frequently. Not all work will be completed on the computer as some work written by hand will still be required. The use of google drive is increasingly common. The students in the primary section have access to in-classroom iPads and computers and will also receive IT lessons each week.
