What is the International Baccalaureate Program?
The International Baccalaureate Program, or IB as it is commonly referred, is a curriculum program that spans multiple countries that aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The program offers students the ability to develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. There are more than 1,116,000 IB students at 3,632 schools in 146 countries.

The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.
