Stuttgart - School Report Question and Answers

Are Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses available in upper grades? If this is an IB school, is the full diploma required of all students?

DP and MYP is offered. The full diploma is not required. MYP assessments are at the end of grade 10. - Jan 2021

This is a point to be aware of: the full diploma is very much required of all students. While a passing grade on the MYP exams is about 28, the upper school principal is clear she will have a talk with any family whose student scores below 32. Similarly, the school will not allow students to select to have simply an ISS high school diploma and not a full IB DP. The only kids I know of who are not doing the DP are ones who failed an MYP exam or are on an IEP for learning disabilities, and even they are still doing all the DP coursework, extended essay and projects. They just won't sit the DP exams. In our observations, it was Ia very high pressure situation. Upper school kids are expected to work on significant projects over the summer break, and turn in drafts or semi-finished versions the second week of school. - Sep 2020
