IB’s Mission ib-world-school-logo-2-colour.png

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is more than its educational programmes and certificates. At our heart we are motivated by a mission to create a better world through education.
- IB aims to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.
- We strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.
- IB encourages students to think critically, challenge assumptions, and consider both local and global contexts.
