Hello! Bonjour! Hola! 
Welcome! Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! 
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) offers a continuum of international education. The programme encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.
IB’s Mission 
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) aims to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. Students will help to build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. 
The IB is different from other curricula because it:
  • Encourages students to think critically and challenge what they are told and is independent of governments and national systems, and therefore able to incorporate best practice from a range of international frameworks and curricula 
  • Encourages students to consider both their local and international environment.

District 205 
Students at IB World Schools are given a unique education. They will:

  • be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
  • take part in programs 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.
