Community: Question and Answers for Grades 7 to 9
 
question
 

There are a few previously asked questions about the IB program that may answer your question:

What are the advantages of my child taking IB courses in highschool?

What is the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and how does it help with university acceptance?

It's hard to compare the IB and traditional school curriculum to see which is "better" -- it all depends on what you're looking for in an education. IB programs are designed to foster critical thinking, worldly understanding and knowledge, with a mandate to "develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world," in addition to teaching the basic core subject skills. However, schools with a very good traditional academic curriculum and reputation for quality academics may provide even better instruction in these core skills.

You can also consult our list of IB private schools and ask them your question as well.
