Mission Statement from the IB

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.

Central to all IB programmes is the Learner Profile. This is a range of capacities and responsibilities which the IB believes will lead students towards becoming internationally minded individuals with respect for themselves, others and the world around them.
