International Baccalaureate

IB Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

What is IB?

The IB diploma programme consists of six courses over the junior and senior year of high school--three taken at high level 9(HL) and three taken at standard level (SL). In the center of the hexagon lies Theory of Knowledge (TOK); the Extended Essay (EE); and Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). All requirements must be met in order to attain an International Baccalaureate Diploma.
