Create a better world through education
Imagine a worldwide community of schools, educators and students with a shared mission to empower young people with the values, knowledge and skills to create a better and more peaceful world. This is the International Baccalaureate (IB).
IB programmes aim to provide an education that enables students to make sense of the complexities of the world around them, as well as equipping them with the skills and dispositions needed for taking responsible action for the future. They provide an education that crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and that champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and meaningful relationships.

Where does the IB come from?
In the late 1960s, a group of innovative educators saw the need for an international approach to education in order to equip young people with the skills, values and knowledge necessary to create a more peaceful future, creating the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 1968 in Geneva, Switzerland. The IB aims to offer better opportunities than other programmes to form caring, informed and knowledgeable young people who are motivated to achieve their goals. We hope that our students contribute to building a better world through mutual understanding and intercultural respect.
