Established in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme is taught to students aged 16-19.
As of 3 September 2019, there are 3,421 schools offering the IB diploma, in 157 different countries worldwide.
The IB diploma was established to provide students with a balanced education, facilitate geographic and cultural mobility and to promote international understanding.
It was created by teachers at the International School of Geneva, with assistance from several other international schools.
Since then, innovative and committed teachers and examiners from around the world have played a significant role in the development of the programme.
