The IB Diploma Programme offers so much opportunity for personal growth and development to young people of all abilities and educational backgrounds. Whilst at first glance the DP may appear very challenging, it has proven to be a very accessible and enduring pathway for more than 270 St Louis High School graduates. Students are constantly encouraged and challenged to understand how much courage and humility it takes to become lifelong learners who recognise how to seek guidance and support when most in need. Our doors are indeed always open and many have made that difficult journey across the threshold, often against many odds and with great perseverance but always with a team of professionals and peers ready to catch them should they fall. Now more than ever we strive to equip our graduates with the resilience and grit they will need in the future.
