What is the IB program?
Created in Switzerland in the 1960s, the IB Diploma Program (IB DP) has spread quickly around the world. The IB DP helps students become life-long learners, internationally minded, positive and active members in the society, and it also helps our world become a better place.
The IB DP includes the last two years of school and prepares students for university and life. IB DP1 is the first year of the Diploma, and IB DP2 is the second year that ends with the External Assessment.
The IB Philosophy, along with the JM principles, prepares students to become “distinguished communicators, role models in society, and dedicated advocates of justice and peace” (JM Vision Statement). This specific Philosophy relies on five Policies.
