IB is short for INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE. The IB Program is an
internationally-recognized program established in 1968 and noted for
its depth and challenging curriculum. It is a rigorous pre-university
course of study leading to assessment in six subject areas. A high
quality currriculum that aims to encourage critical thinking by the
study of traditional disciplines, IB also encourages an international
perspective. Beyond completing college-level courses and examinations,
IB students are also required to engage in community service,
individual research, and inquiry into the nature of knowledge.
