What is International Baccalaureate?
Our school was authorized as International Baccalaureate World school in February 2017. From September 2017 we will be teaching our first Diploma programme students preparing them for studying at a university within the next 2 years.
“Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Schools must be authorized, by the IB organization, to offer any of the programmes.<...>
The IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership and student achievement. We work with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.”

According to the IB organization we are part of a huge international community of educators and students consisting of “5,000 programmes creating educational opportunities for 1.3 million students worldwide”.
