The IB mission
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.

“The MYP has transformed our approach to teaching
and learning. It allows our teachers to teach courses
which are genuinely stimulating, and focused on the
expectations and aspirations of our students, and it
allows our students to engage with a curriculumwhich
is rigorous, imaginative and interdisciplinary.
“It is the best middle school programme available
in the world and I would urge all schools who are
for their staff and students
to introduce it as soon as they can. In doing so, not only
will they best prepare students for further education,
but also provide themwith that unique, rounded
perspective of ourselves and the world around us that
IB students can have.”
