IB Mission

“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 programmes 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 four key foundational and interrelated elements that are central to all IB programmes:

  1. International-mindedness – International-mindedness is a multifaceted concept that captures a way of thinking, being, and acting characterised by an openness to the world and a recognition of our deep interconnectedness to others.
  2. The IB learner profile – The IB learner profile places the student at the center of an IB education with the 10 attributes reflecting the holistic nature of the programmes.
  3. A broad, balanced, conceptual, and connected curriculum.
  4. Approaches to teaching and learning – IB’s six approaches to teaching and five approaches to learning play a crucial role in ensuring that the aspirations of an IB education become a reality in the classroom. The approaches are centered on a cycle of inquiry, action, and reflection—an interplay of asking, doing, and thinking—that informs the daily activities of teachers and learners.
