International Baccalaureate (IB)

Mission Statement
 
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
 
What is IB?
 
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation that began in the late 1960’s, motivated by its mission, focusing on the student. The IB program offers an international education that develops the intellectual, personal, emotional, and social skills needed to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Schools must be authorized by the IB organization to offer the program. The IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership, and student achievement. Through the IB program, we are able to blend our Indiana State Academic Standards with the IB framework to create the best learning environment possible.
