Schools

The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers a full continuum of highest-quality education worldwide. The Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme, and the graduating Diploma Programme encourage personal and academic achievement, and challenge students to excel in their studies and their personal development. Schools must be authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organisation to teach and administer all IB programmes. Each authorized school is known as an IB World School.

IB learning is unique:
- The IB offers a full continuum of education, comprising three individual programmes spanning the years from kindergarten to high school graduation with the pre-university diploma. Although the IB is known most widely for its Diploma Programme, IB World Schools increasingly offer all three programmes.
- The IB has a well-founded reputation with universities and other educational and employment organisations for the top quality of its education for more than 35 years. The curriculum represents the best from many cultures rather than the educational system of any specific country. The academically challenging Diploma Programme assessment is recognized as most attractive by the world´s leading universities.
- The IB maintains high standards by consistently training and supporting teachers, and by authorising and evaluating IB World Schools.
- The IB encourages international-mindedness in all IB students from a solid foundation of first developing an understanding of each student´s own cultural identity. All IB students learn a second language and the skills to live and work with others internationally—essential for life in the 21st century.
- The IB encourages a constructive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to reflect critically, to develop research skills, and to learn in a metacognitive environment.
- The IB encourages community service to develop young people´s understanding that learning takes place in all environments.

The IB programmes are accessible to students in a wide variety of schools including national curriculum, international, public, comprehensive, and private in 143 countries. These IB World Schools form a worldwide community in which there is no such thing as a “typical” school (more than 50% of IB students learn in state-funded schools). IB World Schools co-operate in curriculum development, student assessment, and the governance of the IB, making this a uniquely international learning collaboration
