What is an IB school?

IB offers three programmes for students aged 3 to 19 to help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. There are more than 946,000 IB students at 3,266 schools in 141 countries.

What does the IB offer?

The Primary Years Programme for students aged 3 to 12 focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside.

The Middle Years Programme for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, achieved through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.

The Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 19 is a demanding two-year curriculum leading to final examinations and a qualification that is welcomed by leading universities around the world.

Each programme includes a curriculum and pedagogy, student assessment appropriate to the age range, professional development for teachers and a process of school authorization and evaluation.

What makes the IB unique?

  • IB offers a continuum of education, consisting of three individual programmes that span the years from kindergarten to a pre-university diploma. While IB is traditionally known for the Diploma Programme, IB World Schools increasingly offer all three programmes.
  • IB is proud of their reputation for high quality education sustained for over 35 years. The IB curriculum represents the best from many different countries rather than the exported national system of any one. The challenging Diploma Programme assessment is recognized by the world's leading universities. IB maintain's high standards by actively training and supporting teachers, and by authorizing and evaluating IB World Schools.
  • IB schooles encourage international-mindedness in IB students. To do this, IB schools believe that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national 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.
  • IB schools encourage a positive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to reflect critically, to develop research skills, and to learn how to learn. IB schools encourage community service because they believe that there is more to learning than academic studies alone.
  • IB ensure that all programmes are accessible to students in a wide variety of schools—national, international, public and private—in 141 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 are in state-funded schools). IB World Schools cooperate in curriculum development, student assessment and the governance of the IB, making this a unique international collaboration.
