What is 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.
