What is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme?

The IB Diploma Programme is an international education program that prepares students for participation in a global society by offering a rigorous, balanced curriculum that draws from a wide range of disciplines. It incorporates educational practices from around the world and encourages curiosity, open-mindedness and intercultural understanding.
