Description

Founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1968, the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) has developed four different educational programmes. The IB Diploma Programme is a challenging two-year curriculum aimed at students aged 16 to 19. This IB qualification is welcomed by leading universities around the world. At St. George’s, IB Diploma main language of instruction is English.

WHAT IS THE PROFILE OF THE IB DIPLOMA? The IB Diploma students develop their academic and personal strengths by:

  • asking challenging questions
  • learning how to learn
  • developing a strong sense of their own identity and culture
  • building communication skills and understanding of other cultures
  • THE IB LEARNER PROFILE

    The IB Learner Profile was developed from the IBO Mission Statement. It describes the ideal character of an IB student. IB Diploma students are encouraged to be Inquirers, Thinkers, Communicators, Risk-takers, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Knowledgeable, Balanced and Reflective.
