We feel compelled to deliver the highest standards in education.
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 programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The IB Diploma Programme for students between the ages of 16 and 19 provides an academically challenging and balanced education. It focuses on the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The IB Diploma Programme is recognized at the world's leading universities.
