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

To this end the organization works with schools,
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.

    outcomes
  – Personal challenge- tasks must extend the
    student and be achievable in scope
  – Thoughtful consideration, such as planning,
    reviewing progress, reporting
  – Reflection on outcomes and personal learning.
