It’s with utmost pleasure that I welcome you to the academic year 2022-2023 at Modern Knowledge Schools. You are on the right web page where IB students, parents/guardians from grade 11 to 12 can access information about our exciting IB programme. 

We are excited and looking forward with much hope, dedication and enthusiasm to a new academic year given that COVID-19 has had its challenges, especially in the education industry as a whole. With the world now moving on, here at MKS we are ready to proceed with our strategic goals to improve the teaching and learning while providing excellent experiences for all our students. 

This year, the MKS IB programme will be undergoing an IB evaluation process that comes every five years, in which we reflect on the past five years. This is carried out through aSWOT analysis of the IB programme, and allows us to move forward with an action plan premised on the best standards and practices guided by IBO to ensure that we implement IB programmes with fidelity, to achieve results that ultimately lead to the fulfillment of the IB and school’s mission. 

I warmly welcome you to this university-preparatory curriculum that is recognized as the pinnacle of secondary education – The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. IB curriculum is as challenging as it is rewarding, and is aligned perfectly with Modern Knowledge Schools’ vision of an education that fosters responsible, respectful, global minded, lifelong learners. 

I am further delighted to inform you that our 2022 IB Diploma class scored an impressive top score of 38 points despite being on lockdown for most of the time during the two year course due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Congratulations to the joint top scoring students, Osama Karzoon and AlMeera Alam Khusro, as well as the class of 2022. I’d also like

to express fathomless gratitude to our wonderful IB teachers for making this achievement possible. 

The focus of our IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, therefore helping to create a better and more peaceful world, just as Jean Grenier mentions that “It is as noble to aim towards balance as towards perfection, since keeping balance is a perfection”.
