How we work with schools

We ask schools to take part in an authorization process to ensure that they meet our standards to become an IB World School. Once they have received our authorization, we provide them with programme curricula and assessment. We re-evaluate all schools every five years to verify that they continue to meet our standards, created to help ensure that all our programmes are taught as effectively as possible.

Schools remain independent organizations accountable to their own administrative and governance bodies – this includes policies related to admissions, faculty, and students. Our programmes provide them with the essential elements – the knowledge, concepts, skills, and actions that teachers need to equip students for success, both now and in the future.

We follow student progress with our assessments, which help students achieve better outcomes and promote consistent standards and practices across all IB World Schools.
