IB Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate Organization 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 IBO 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.
