International Baccalaureate (IB)

The IB Diploma Program is internationally recognized as representing one of the highest standards in university preparatory education. The IB Program reflects a central desire to provide an education that enables students to make sense of the complexities of the world around them, as well as equipping them with the skills and dispositions needed for taking responsible action for the future. They provide an education that crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and that champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and effective relationships.
