About the IB
The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers four high-quality, challenging educational programmes to students aged 3 to 19 years. We foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and value diversity, international mindedness, curiosity, and a healthy appetite for learning and excellence.
An IB education is uniquely placed to provide students with distinct advantages as they enter a changing world where asking the right questions is as important as discovering answers.
The IB pioneered a movement of international education for over 50 years, and today our global community of world class educators engage with more than 1.95 million students in more than 5,500 schools across 159 countries.
