We welcome your interest in the International Baccalaureate® (IB) and look forward to working with you as you seek to implement the Primary Years Programme in your school.

The following outlines the path to becoming an IB World School.

The IB Asia-Pacific office is responsible for guiding schools in the Primary Years Programme curriculum and in implementing the programme. Any request for information or guidance should be directed to the IB Asia-Pacific office.

Further key information for interested schools and all the documentation for the process is available on the "Become an IB World School" page.
