The International Baccalaureate
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a globally recognized leader in 21st-century education for its emphasis on academic rigor, inquiry-based learning, and the development of personal skills that best prepare students for a changing world.
An Exceptional Global Education
Dynamically involved in ongoing programme development, the International Baccalaureate works closely with educational research teams from all over the world to remain at the forefront of the best teaching and learning practices. The IB is highly respected for preparing students for the top colleges and universities in their own countries and abroad.
All of the IB programmes are founded on a learner-centered and inquiry-based pedagogy. Teaching in the IB model is built on a learner-centric approach that revolves around the curiosity and questions of the students. It is designed to encourage students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who are prepared to be engaged and responsible world citizens.
The IB Programmes
The International Baccalaureate offers four coordinated curriculum programmes for approved schools. Escuela Bilingüe Internacional uses the IB Primary Years Programme, for students in pre-kinder to 5th grade, and the IB Middle Years Programme for students in grades 6 to 8.
All of the International Baccalaureate programmes share a similar pedagogical premise and offer an integrated continuum of international education. They encourage both personal and academic achievement by challenging students to excel in their studies as well as in their personal development. Schools must be officially authorized by the International Baccalaureate® in order to teach the IB programmes and to be recognized as an IB World school.
