Advanced Placement (AP) Program:
Developed by The College Board to allow high school students to take university-level academic courses and to show they have mastered the advanced materials by writing AP exams. Based on the student’s exam performance, he/she can earn credit(s) toward his/her college or university studies.

More information about the AP program is available each school’s guidance department and on the College Board website.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Program:
Originally designed to meet the needs of children of the international business and diplomatic communities. Founders of the program set out to create international curriculum to satisfy the demand of various national education ministries. The program currently works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. There is an application and testing process for students wishing to enter the IB program.
Where is IB programming available in the SSRSB? Park View Education Centre (PVEC).
