Who We Are

A global world. A world class education.

The IB is a nonprofit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, focused on the student. The three programs for students aged 3 to 19 help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. There are more than 1.1 million IB students in 3,582 schools in 145 countries, and the numbers are growing constantly.

The IB offers a continuum of high-quality education that encourages international-mindedness and a positive attitude to learning.

  • IB is proud of its reputation for high-quality education sustained for over 45 years. The curriculum represents the best from many different countries rather than the exported national system of any one. The challenging Diploma Programme assessment is recognized by the world's leading universities. IB maintains its high standards by actively training and supporting teachers, and by authorizing and evaluating IB World Schools.

  • IB encourages international-mindedness in IB students. To do this, IB believes that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity. All IB students learn a second language and the skills to live and work with others internationally-essential for life in the 21st century.

  • IB encourages a positive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to critically reflect, to develop research skills, and to learn how to learn. Also encouraged is community service because we believe that there is more to learning than academic studies alone.
