Community: Question and Answers for How to choose a school
 
question
 
The IB Programme is an internationally accepted common curriculum developed and regulated by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in Geneva, Switzerland.

Many people think of the high school-level Diploma Programme when they think of IB, but the IB Programme has expanded and now includes three programs that span kindergarten to pre-university. "IB World Schools" that offer one, two or all of the programs follow a specific IB curriculum of subject groups. The aim of IB is to offer an international education that will help students develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.

Read how schools are implementing the IB curriculum and how students are benefiting in these student testimonials.
