This year we are excited to share with you our new school mission and vision to support the implementation of International Baccalaureate methods and philosophy. As an IB candidate school, we strive to be an engaging, collaborative, and global community. The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) will be implemented in grades 1-3 this year, while its methods and values will be carried across the school in various projects and initiatives.
Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop 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 any of the programmes.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is more than its educational programmes and certificates. At our heart we are motivated by a mission to create a better world through education.
Students at International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools are given a unique education. They will:
- be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
- take part in programmes of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world
- become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
- be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
