Criteria for the World IB Programs


The International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization is a foundation that has developed and offers three (3) programs of international education entitled the "Primary Years (PYP) Program", the "Middle Years Program (MYP)" and the "Diploma Program (DP)".


The IB Organization authorizes schools to offer one or more of these programs to students. An IB World School® is a school that has been authorized to offer one or more of its programs.


The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) is a rigorous pre-university program leading to assessments in six subject areas.  The IB offers a challenging curriculum, taught by accredited IB teachers. The program is noted for its depth and its international perspective.  The IB Diploma provides a coherent and demanding educational experience across the full curriculum and requires IB students to engage in community service, individual research, and an inquiry into the nature of knowledge.


The IB Diploma is accepted as an admissions credential at universities in 102 countries.  In addition, high scores on IB exams often entitle students to transfer credits, scholarships and admissions into highly competitive programs at university.
