THE IB TEACHING STYLE

Education in International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools:
  • Develops effective approaches to teaching and learning
  • Works within global contexts, helping students understand different languages and cultures
  • Explores significant content, developing disciplinary and interdisciplinary understanding that meets rigorous international standards

COMPARING THE IB WITH OTHER QUALIFICATIONS

Research suggests that in many cases, students in International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes perform better than students taking other qualifications.

For example:
  • A global study investigating performance in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) found that IB students outperformed their non-IB peers in mathematics, reading, narrative writing and expository writing.
  • Qualitative data from a 2014 study on the IB Diploma Programme (DP) in the USA suggested that students who participated in the DP during high school are more academically adjusted to the rigour and expectations of college.
