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.

What makes IB different from other programs?

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an assessed programme for students aged 16 to 19. International Baccalaureate schools offer an integrated approach to college preparation that includes not only challenging coursework, but also develops a global perspective and awareness that will be critical to the success of students as they prepare for the changing and emerging careers of this century.

The program is a rigorous course of studies, leading to examinations in six academic areas, which meet the needs of highly motivated secondary school students. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners. Designed as a comprehensive curriculum that allows its graduates to fulfill requirements of various national education systems.
