International Baccalaureate

Alpamayo is part of a community of schools around the world that share a common ideal of participating in the construction of a more peaceful world, within the framework of mutual understanding and intercultural respect.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, implemented in Alpamayo in grades 10 and 11, give our students the opportunity to access a bilingual certification that allows them to enter directly prestigious universities in Peru or abroad, as well as the validation of their subject knowledge.
It is a demanding and balanced academic program aimed at developing key competencies for university life: argumentation, critical thinking, research, teamwork, community outreach, and international vision.
At the center of the DP is the profile of the IB learning community that proposes both the teaching students, as well as parents and teachers, to develop a culture of lifetime learning from the following personal profile features: inquirers, informed and educated, thinkers, reflective, open-minded, honest, balanced, good communicators, supportive and audacious.
The International Baccalaureate offers our students intense learning experience through a group of subjects that are part of the common core: Extended Essay, Theory of knowledge, and Creativity, Activity, and Service.

Group 1 Language and Literature Studies: Literature HL (Spanish)
