IB benefits

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is unique for the following reasons:

  • It offers a continuum of education, which consists of three individual programs ranging from kindergarten to a pre-university diploma.
  • It has a formidable reputation for high-quality education sustained for over 35 years, with the curriculum representing the best from many different countries rather than a curriculum adopted by a specific national system.  Its challenging Diploma Programme assessment is recognized and respected by the world's leading universities.
  • It encourages international and intercultural thinking, first by developing in students an understanding of their own cultural and national identity and then branching into a profound understanding of the world.  All IB students learn a second or third language, and in turn develop skills to live and work with others internationally, required for twenty-first century life.
  • It generates a positive attitude towards learning by motivating students to perform in challenging areas, critical thinking, and research skills and to learn "how to learn." Similarly, it encourages community service based on the belief that there is much more to learn beyond the academics.
