IB Schoolwide Adoption

The IB believes that all students should have access to high-quality learning experiences. Beyond a traditional focus on content, an IB education empowers young people to develop as lifelong learners who can both manage and lead their educational journey. Start exploring how your school can adopt the IB schoolwide.

The IB is a non-profit organization that creates programmes aligned to age-appropriate stages of human development. The programmes designed by the IB offer schools far more than a curriculum framework. Each IB programme is implemented through schoolwide Programme Standards and Practices which need to be in place to create optimal learning environments for students and teachers.

Education by design: adopting IB courses schoolwide

Each year, the IB partners with schools to support their strategy to increase student access to high-quality education with the offering of at least one IB Diploma Programme (DP) course to all students.
