Overview of the IB
The International Baccalaureate Organization is a non-profit educational organization that was established in 1968. It is governed by a 17-member Council of Foundation and is funded by fees from IB world schools with additional income from workshops and catalog sales. Donors provide support for development projects that otherwise cannot be implemented from the organization’s budget.
IB World Schools maintain their high quality through regular professional development of staff, effective delivery of cutting-edge teaching practice, and a rigorous approach to inquiry-based learning. Schools authorized by the IB must put students at the center of everything they do, treat learning holistically from multiple perspectives, emphasize strong communication skills, and promote intercultural awareness. The IB carries out regular evaluations to ensure schools provide a culture of learning in line with international philosophy and goals.
