IB Mission Statement

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.  

 

For further information, please visit the IBO Website.

Students learn about significant concepts (or, big ideas) through Units of Inquiry.

While exploring the unit’s central idea, students learn specific elements from the core subjects – english, mathematics, science, history, geography, japanese, physical education, visual arts and performing arts – and form their own connections between what they are learning and how it relates to the world around them; in essence, students don’t just learn, they learn how to learn.
