Benefits of the IB Program

Benefits of the IB Program

It promotes international understanding; educates the whole person, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth; and develops inquiry and critical thinking skills, and the capacity to reflect upon and to evaluate actions critically.

The Diploma Program prepares students for university and encourages them to: ask challenging questions, learn how to learn, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.

Upon completion of the Diploma Program, students will:
  • Receive a balanced subject breadth and depth of education, and considered the nature of knowledge across disciplines.
  • Develop a positive attitude toward learning that prepares them for success at the university level.
  • Develop the whole student - physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
  • Citizens who are internationally minded-who embrace their own culture, are open and responsive to other cultures, and will be prepared to live and work in our global economy.
In addition to the skills and knowledge gained from the program, an IB diploma is a desirable factor in the college admissions process; college credit can be earned from successful completion of IB exams.
