The International Baccalaureate® Program
IB programs aim to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. The IB strives to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.
IB program frameworks can operate effectively with national curricula at all ages; more than 50% of IB World Schools are state-funded.
The IB’s programs are different from other curricula because they:
- encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions;
- develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools;
- encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts;
- develop multilingual students.
