IB Mission Statement

The International Baccalaueate 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, government 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. 


Students at IB World Schools develop strong academic and social characteristics. They are given a unique education and they:

  • are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning. 
  • take part in programmes of education that opens doors to the highest ranking universities worldwide. 
  • become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language. 
  • are able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
