The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program focuses on high-quality education with a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. IB promotes a positive attitude toward learning by helping students “learn how to learn.” The IB program also focuses on intercultural communication and understanding, a critical component for 21st century success.


IB offers 4 different programs. These are:

  • The Primary Years Programme (PYP) for pupils aged 3 to 12 focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside.

  • The Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.

  • The Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 19 is a demanding two-year curriculum that meets the needs of highly motivated students, and leads to a qualification that is recognized by leading universities around the world.

  • The IB Career-Related Certificate (IBCC) for students aged 16 - 19 incorporates the educational principles, vision and learner profile of the IB into a unique offering that specifically addresses the needs of students who wish to engage in career-related education.
