The IBDP at Nagoya International Junior and Senior High School

On December 8, 2014, the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) officially recognized Nagoya International Junior and Senior High School (NIHS) as an IB World School and gave NIHS permission to implement the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) on April 1, 2015.

Starting in 2017, the IB Course of study will comprise the whole 3-years of high school. In the 1st year students will primarily study MEXT (monbukagakusho) required subjects taught in Japanese, as well as Pre-IB subjects taught in English (literature, social studies, math, and the sciences).
During the 2nd and 3rd years of the IB track, which will be the IBDP proper, students can choose from a variety of subjects within the 6 groups of study. Depending on their academic orientation and post-secondary college choices, students can opt for the following tracks:

 G1  G2  G3  G4  G5  G6

Admission Process

The IB admission process is very competitive since the IB Program itself is rigorous and demanding. Currently we hold entrance exams for both the 3-year course, and for those who will be transfering directly into the IBDP (in the second year of High School).

The admission process consists of:
 1. Essay Exam in English
 2. Math Exam
 3. Interview
 4. Review of Academic Records (i.e. transcripts, letters of recommendation)
 5. English Proficiency Exam Results (TOEIC 605, TOEFL IBT 65, IELTS 5.5, CEFR B2)

Feel free to contact the IB Coordinator if you have further inquiries (jonatas@nihs.ed.jp)

Additional information about the admission process (as well as the forms that students need to bring in during the Pre-IB/IB Entrance Examination) can be found in the attached IB Entrance Examination Guidelines.
