Schools that have been authorized by us to offer one or more of our programmes are known as "IB World Schools".
- share the mission and commitment of the IB to quality international education
- play an active and supporting role in the worldwide community of IB schools
- share their knowledge and experience in the development of the IB programmes
- are committed to the professional development of teachers.
Authorization to become an IB World School is an intensive process that typically takes two or more years and includes site visits by an IB team.
A regular process of evaluation is undertaken by schools that have been authorized.
