An International Baccalaureate World

By Paul Silli

The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is a non-profit educational foundation which was developed for students age 3 to 19. The heart of the program is to help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills of learners. Lessons are geared toward offering real-life activities for students to produce work that directly affects their lives in our world community.

According to the Education Foundation Association, the IB principle in learning was founded in 1968, and has reached worldwide where there are currently 3,397 schools in 140 countries participating. It is estimated that more than 1,015,000 students are enrolled in an IB program. It is used in both private & public schools.

IB is more than its educational development – it is intended to engage students to creatively learn how to make our world a better place. The program allows universities to monitor student grades and progress. The IB culture also teaches students how to “analyze” what they are learning, rather than simply memorizing facts.

Students are assessed by how they evaluate and solve problems while gaining valuable critical thinking skills. IB programs prepare learners for university education through rigorous projects and home studies. Graduation success rates are high. 🙂

Academically, IB schools are not easy for students — and if you wish to earn an IB diploma you should prepare to spend additional time for class workloads. For more info visit: http://www.ibo.org/

    I am not the biggest fan of IB programs. I know the learning is great but it seems like an old style that has been reinvented to fit todays kids. It does help in college prep but what about in life.
