All IB programmes are learner-centered and inquiry-based. Students are prepared to be functionally multilingual and informed with a world perspective in history, literature, geography, mathematics and the sciences. The program culminates with the IB Diploma, recognized by colleges and universities around the world, often with advanced standing.
