IB World School
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, focused on the student.
The ISPP Mission Statement aligns with the International Baccalaureate Mission:
The International Baccalaureate 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 organization 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.
Founded in 1968, the IB currently works with nearly 4,000 schools in 146 countries to develop and offer their challenging programmes to over 1,200,000 students aged 3 to 19 years. Within each country, networks and associations enable schools to learn from each others experiences. Teachers, coordinators and heads of schools from across the whole region meet at IB Asia-Pacific workshops and conferences.
Three programmes are offered at ISPP to help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
- The Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students aged 3 to 12 focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside. Learn more about the Primary Years Programme at ISPP.
- The Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, achieved through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects. Learn more about the Middle Years Programme (MYP) at ISPP.
