Associations of IB World Schools in the Americas
Associations of International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools are groups formed by and for IB school practitioners.
They assist teachers, students and existing IB World Schools in their area, supporting schools to implement IB programmes, and providing a forum for discussion within the community.
Initially launched as informal gatherings of teachers from nearby schools, the Associations have become effective advocates for the IB among universities and governments, and an indispensable resource for schools inquiring about the IB.
Individual members serve as officers and committee members of their association, educate others about the IB, and form a powerful network of support for the larger IB community.
