Welcome to our IB (International Baccalaureate) home web page
The International Baccalaureate (IB) program provides a stimulating academic environment that celebrates learning and connects it to the world outside the classroom. It emphasizes awareness and acceptance of all cultures and attitudes, and fosters an understanding of how and why we learn.
The International Baccalaureate program is designed by the International Baccalaureate Organization, a non-profit Swiss-based educational foundation. It was formed in 1968 with an initial goal of establishing a common curriculum and university entry credentials. Upon completion of the IB program, students earn a diploma that is recognized by universities internationally.
Erindale Secondary School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
If you have any questions, please give us a call at: (905) 828-7206 and ask to speak with Mr. Miller (Head of Alternative Programs) or an administrator.
