We live in an increasingly global, interconnected world and the Halifax Grammar School recognizes the need to prepare students for success in that world. Critical thinking skills and a sense of international-mindedness are at the core of what students learn and fully understand through the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. It is an advanced university preparatory curriculum offered in Grades 11 and 12 that provides the best possible preparation for post-secondary success. Since 1993, the Grammar School has offered the International Baccalaureate program. The Grammar School is widely recognized as the leading IB World School in Atlantic Canada. We seek to produce students who strive to be: active inquirers, independent thinkers, effective communicators, intellectual risk-takers, and principled individuals who are open-minded, caring, balanced and reflective.
