International Baccalaureate seeks to provide students with a rigorous, holistic educational experience that is recognized the world over as the leading university preparation program available to high school students. IB’s mission “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.”
