The aim of all International Baccalaureate (IB) programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better, more peaceful world.
Preparation for University and Life Beyond
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. It is an academically-challenging, two-year pre-university course with final examinations that prepare students for success at university and life beyond.
Assessments of students’ works are done by an international board of examiners, who are rigorously trained and monitored by the International Baccalaureate Organization (I.B.O.).
A Passport to the World
The IB Diploma is considered as a passport to leading national and international universities. IB Diploma graduates are welcomed by the world’s top universities, as the IB Diploma is a highly regarded entrance qualification.
