What is the educational philosophy of the IB?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) was founded in 1968 in Geneva, Switzerland. It sought 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.
Such an education crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and effective relationships.
The main aim of IB is to provide high-quality programmes of international education. It provides a threestage educational program for students of 3-19 years of age.

The three programs are:

  • Primary Years Programme (PYP) for 3-12 years old (Kindergarten (EYP 1 & EYP 2) to Grade 5)
  • Middle Years Programme (MYP) for 11-16 years old (Grade 6 to Grade 10)
  • Diploma Programme (DP) for 16-19 years old (Grade 11 and Grade 12

The three programs are aimed at developing intellectual, emotional, personal and social skills to learn, work and live in a global world.
