Which Singapore schools offer all three IB programmes?

There are seven full IB schools offering all three programmes including the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the IBDP. The IB's three programmes were not actually designed as a continuum. Each is a standalone framework and curriculum, developed at different times and stages of the IB's evolution. Increasingly, the IB organisation is moving to provide an overarching framework for children from 11 through to 19. Even with this, however, it is not necessary, or even usual for a school to offer all programmes.

The following schools offer the IB continuum:

Canadian International School (Lakeside Campus)
Chatsworth International School (Bukit Timah Campus)
GEMS World Academy, Singapore

German European School Singapore
Hillside World Academy
ISS International School Singapore (High School)
Stamford American International School
