International Baccalaureate (IB)

The PRIGO Language and Humanities Grammar School has applied for a programme enabling our students to take the International Baccalaureate (IB), which is necessary for studying at prestigious foreign universities. If the appropriate structure is chosen for the International Baccalaureate and a corresponding score is achieved, the result will likely lead to admission to the best universities in the world, including the TOP 10. The students of our Grammar School who start their studies in the 2020/2021 school year will be able to apply for this prestigious programme in the last two years of their studies, consistently preparing themselves for the International Baccalaureate during that period. They will also be able to choose whether to pass the Czech school-leaving exam and the International Baccalaureate or only one of them.

PRIGO Language and Humanities Grammar School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Mission Statement from the IB

The DofE project also helps students prepare for the International Baccalaureate. The school has been involved in this project since 2017 (The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, DofE, https://www.dofe.cz/). The programme’s goal is to support young people aged 14–24 in their comprehensive development of skills and abilities through long-term and regular activities in four interrelated areas: talent development, sports, volunteering and adventure expeditions at three levels. Upon the programme’s completion, the participants can receive an internationally recognised DofE certificate. You can find out more about the DofE project here.
