International Baccalaureate (IB) Programs
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.
Students participating in any of the four International Baccalaureate (IB) programs develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world. IB graduates are accepted into universities throughout the world and are prepared for success in any of their chosen careers. Critical and creative thinking are developed through student-centered learning experiences in all academic disciplines and the arts. IB students study an additional world language.

- Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students in Grades K-5
- Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students in Grades 6-10
- Diploma Programme (DP) for students in Grades 11-12
- IB Career-related Programme (IBCP) is designed for high school students who wish to participate in the IB Diploma Programme, while also completing a Career Education pathway.
Students participating in any of the four International Baccalaureate (IB) programs develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Apply to a Choice IB Programme.
