  • How is the IB different?

    International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes aim to do more by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. The IB strives to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.

    The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:

    • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
    • develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools
    • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
    • develop multilingual students

    In order to teach IB programmes, schools must be authorized. Every school authorized to offer IB programmes is known as an IB World School.

    A continuum of international education and quality practice

    The IB encourages both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. They encourage students to be internationally-minded, within a complex and hyper-connected world.

    Students learn how to learn

    Throughout all IB programmes, students develop approaches to learning skills and the attributes of the IB learner profile.

    Students are able to take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge itself is constructed. They are encouraged to try different approaches to learning and to take responsibility for their own educational progress.

    The IB programme helps students to:

    • ask challenging questions
    • think critically
    • develop research skills proven to help them in higher education

    IB programmes also encourage students to be active in their communities and to take their learning beyond academic study.

    • Encouraging diversity and flexibility in teaching methods
    • Providing appropriate forms of assessment and international benchmarking

  • History of IB

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a rigorous, pre-university course of study for students in their junior and senior years of high school. Students entering into the program in the 9th grade will have modified schedules to prepare them for the IB classes that they will receive later in the junior and senior year. The two-year curriculum is designed as a comprehensive study that leads to internal and external exams that fulfills both Georgia state and IB requirements.
