Learning for Life  

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.

The Primary Years Program (PYP) is an inclusive program that helps students wonder and learn to think deeply. Children in PYP schools are encouraged to take action in response to their learning. The International Baccalaureate allows schools to create a common language and help students to become culturally responsible to the world in which they live.
