About FLIBS

The first Florida schools to receive International Baccalaureate authorization were:

  1. St. Petersburg High School in St. Petersburg
  2. Stanton College Preparatory High School in Jacksonville
  3. Eastside High School in Gainesville

The authorizations were granted on March 10, 1983. Immediately, the three schools planned a meeting, and from this origin, IB Coordinators have worked in unison to promote the programmes. Soon, a Constitution and By Laws were adopted and submitted to the Secretary of State for a Charter of Incorporation. The charter was granted on July 18, 1988. This charter states that FLIBS is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(C)(3)of the Internal Revenue Code and as a Non-profit Corporation in the State of Florida.

The purpose of FLIBS shall be the general improvement of education for the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programs. These programs are accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organization. All of the authorized schools in the State of Florida and applicant schools in the southeast region may join FLIBS and participate in the organization.  The goals and objectives of FLIBS include:

  • Facilitating continuing program development, curriculum improvement and implementation.
  • Sponsoring opportunities for networking for teachers, counselors, coordinators and administrators.
  • Serving as a clearinghouse for ideas and materials relating to IB courses and programs.
  • Facilitating publicity for students, high schools, and school systems participating in the IB.
  • Facilitating professional, student and public discussions of IB programs.
  • Fostering recognition and understanding of the IB by North American Universities and Colleges.
