What are the benefits of an IB education compared to other schools?
The International Baccalaureate offers many benefits to schools such as:
• High quality programmes of education, which support development of knowledgeable and inquiring students
• Professional development that supports effective educators and collaborative professional learning communities.
• A worldwide network of highly respected IB World Schools, working together to share best practice.
IB students in the IB PYP and MYP performed better than non-IB students in a global International School´s Assessment study that ran from 2009 to 2011, while DP graduates complete college faster than their peers, feel more prepared for college-level coursework involving research, and are better able to cope with demanding workloads and time-management challenges.
IB World Schools work within a global community, creating frequent opportunities for shared learning and collaboration with others.
The IB also helps schools with programme planning and optimization. This may include mentoring, coaching, consultation or self-guided learning online.
