About IB Asia Pacific
The IB is a trusted and reliable provider of high quality, rigorous international education for students between the ages of 3 and 19. Our programmes provide them the essential skills and knowledge to thrive and contribute as active global citizens.
Singapore’s central location within the Asia Pacific, excellent infrastructure and business and education-friendly environment, has been deemed the ideal location to ensure quality growth. For this reason, we have reaffirmed our choice of Singapore as one of the three global IB centres to support IB’s growth in this region.
IB World Schools
- While the IB does not own or manage schools, it works with schools around the world that share our vision of, and commitment to, international education. These include state, international and private independent schools.
- Our Asia Pacific office serves over 560 IB World Schools located in 28 countries and offers over 800 IB programmes in total.
- IB World Schools are critical in making the mission and values of the IB come alive in classrooms and communities. We provide ongoing support to our IB World Schools in curriculum development, student assessment and the governance of the IB.
- The regular, on-going and rigorous evaluations of authorized IB schools are part of our commitment to keeping high quality, consistent academic standards around the world.
The IB diploma programme, with its unique balance of breadth and depth of subject material combined with core components of theory of knowledge, an extended essay, and community service, is highly regarded by tertiary institutions around the world as providing an exemplary preparation for university.
We are committed to supporting the ongoing development of a worldwide professional learning community in the form of regional face-to-face workshops and resource-rich online environments for IB teachers.
We have trained more than 6,000 IB teachers in the Asia Pacific region.
