What is IB?

The International Baccalaureate Organization was founded in 1967 to offer a strong educational program implementing best practices in education to children of European diplomats and ambassadors. It began as the Diploma Programme for high school, and in the 1990s, the organization developed a Middle Years Programme (middle school) and a Primary Years Program (elementary school). More information about the organization can be found at their website ( www.ibo.org).
