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.
