Offerings & Enrollments

Course offerings are adjusted each year depending on enrollment and interest. Some courses are offered to students but do not go forward due to low enrollment. Courses must have a certain number of students interested in order to go forward.

What's the different between Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL) courses?
 
Higher Level (HL) and Standard Level (SL) courses differ in scope but are measured according to the same grade descriptors, with students expected to demonstrate a greater body of knowledge, understanding and skills in the HL course. HL courses have more hours of instruction and study associated with them.
