What’s an IB School?

International Baccalaureate (IB) schools are educational institutions that offer a specific curriculum designed by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). The IBO is an international non-profit organisation that provides a comprehensive education program that aims to develop well-rounded students with critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills. The IB curriculum consists of several programmes, including the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (DP).

These programmes provide a rigorous and challenging curriculum that covers subjects such as mathematics, science, language, humanities and arts. Additionally, the IB curriculum has a strong focus on intercultural awareness, environmental responsibility and community service, which helps students become responsible global citizens. IB schools also have a unique approach to assessment, focusing on student learning, through various means including exams, projects, portfolios and group work. In summary, IB schools offer a comprehensive, international curriculum that emphasises critical thinking, problem-solving and intercultural awareness, and assesses student learning through multiple means.
