Mulgrave's rigorous Senior School programme prepares students for post-secondary education and beyond.
Our students benefit from an educational environment which stresses higher-level critical thinking, inquiry and research skills, allowing them to develop a broad basis of knowledge and abilities while gaining an indepth understanding of subjects of most interest to them.
In their Grade 10 year, students learn the following core subjects: English, Languages (French or Mandarin), Social Studies, Science, Math and Physical Education. Students may choose two electives from the following: Academic Creative Enrichment (A.C.E.), Visual Arts, Theatre Arts, Film Studies and Band.
Students write three provincial exams including English 10, Science 10 and Foundations of Mathematics 10, which are worth 20% of the student's overall grade. In addition, students are able to complete a Personal Project and to attain the MYP certificate, providing they have met all the criteria.
Mulgrave offers a single programme in Grades 11 and 12 that integrates the requirements of the BC curriculum and the IB Diploma Programme (DP). Consistent with the International Baccalaureate Organisation philosophy to provide equal opportunity to all students in IB diploma schools, our DP is open to all Mulgrave students in Grades 11 and 12.
As our emphasis is on inclusion, all students are provided the opportunity to earn an IB Diploma, internationally recognised by post-secondary institutions. Many universities actively seek out full IB Diploma students in their recruitment strategies, offering incentives such as early acceptance, scholarships and credit for first year courses. Moreover, our curriculum in the Senior School fulfils the BC Ministry of Education graduation requirements, allowing students to also obtain the Ministry of Education Dogwood diploma.
