The 2+1Canadian Program at Walton is a Sino-Canadian Project in high school that is jointly conducted by our school and an affiliated school district called Kamloops in Canada. After completing two years of learning (10th grade and 11th grade) and completing the required credits, the students will go straight to the public schools of Kamloops in the 12th grade. After students complete the credits required by the Canadian school, they will directly receive Canadian diplomas. In the end, students will apply directly to Canadian Universities with a Canadian high school diploma.
Walton Foreign Language school believes that the core of school education is the curriculum. The school curriculum ideology determines what students learn, how to learn, and why they learn. The Walton Foreign Language School changes the traditional school moral education and makes a clear distinction in the pedagogy of education. The whole campus is our students’ classroom for all the instructional time. All the school activities are part of the curriculum. They are constructed with a scientific and analytical concept of modern education and blend with a liberal arts curriculum system that realizes the importance of a “Holistic Education” that will be the foundation for our creation of Global Citizens.
As an official IB World School, our school has been authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) to offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP) at senior school level. We also work hard and expect to be authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) in October 2019. Our local and foreign staffs are working hard together to make our school a fully authorized IB PYP school. We are also cooperating with other schools offering the IB curriculum as we grow in the world of high-quality international education.
The Diploma Program is the earliest stage of the entire IB curriculum system(1968). This phase of the course is open to students between the ages of 16 and 19. The whole course lasts for two years, which is equivalent to China’s year 11 and 12 study. After completing the DP curriculum, students apply for university globally.
The entire curriculum is divided into six subject groups and three core courses. The subject groups include native language, acquired language, sociology, experimental science, mathematics, art and optional courses. Based on the study of these six subject group, students in IB-DP stage will master three core skills like TOK(Theory of Knowledge), EE(Extended Essay) and CAS(Creativity, Activity, Service).

Walton Foreign Language School has also implemented a new program that complements our IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma) program as well as the other curricula that are part of our educational structure. A-Level is a British high school curriculum and is widely recognized around the world, especially in English speaking countries like UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Inheriting the rigor of British education, A-Level is the best option for most students for its flexibility in both exam arrangement(twice a year) and subject options.
