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.

Each programme includes a curriculum and pedagogy, student assessment appropriate to the age range, professional development for teachers, and a process of school authorization and evaluation. The IB Profile is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of IB schools and teachers, uniting them in a common purpose and providing a long-term vision of education. Students are provided with opportunities to develop the following attributes of the Learner Profile:

  • inquirers
  • knowledgeable
  • thinkers
  • communicators
  • principled
  • open-minded
