The International Baccalaureate Program
The IB Program consists of a two-year pre-IB program and two-year pre-university course of study designed to meet the needs of highly motivated students and to promote international understanding. The effectiveness of the IB program is due not only to the depth of the individual courses, but also to the comprehensive nature of the program.
