Organization (IBO)

Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to build a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

 To this end the organization works with schools and 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.
