High School Grade 11 to 12
All students take English and Japanese, Mathematics, Individuals and Societies, and Science. Art, music, design, and physical education are also an integral part of the curriculum in the secondary school. Students come to DISK with varying levels of English and Japanese. Many of our students study both languages at an advanced level.
We help our students develop the ability to communicate with, and understand, people from various cultures, and thereby place special emphasis on language acquisition. At the same time, our students are encouraged to become aware of their own identity and culture and be able to place themselves in an international, global context.
Japanese language is an important subject in our curriculum for all DISK students, as part of our effort to promote Japanese language and culture in an internationally-minded environment. We aim to nurture students who will cherish their memories at DISK and become adults able to create a global cooperation network with Japan.
In grades 11 and 12, students take DP courses in six subject areas (Language A, Language B, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics and the Arts) as well as the core DP curriculum requirements of Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay and Creativity, Action, Service (CAS).
