An IB World School is an educational institution that offers one or more of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. The International Baccalaureate is an internationally recognized education foundation that provides a framework for high-quality, challenging educational programs for students aged 3 to 19. These programs aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who are prepared to contribute to a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.
There are several IB programs that schools can offer:
Primary Years Program (PYP): This program is designed for students aged 3 to 12 and focuses on developing the whole child in terms of academic, personal, and social growth.
Middle Years Program (MYP): Geared towards students aged 11 to 16, the MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies and the real world.
Diploma Program (DP): This is a comprehensive two-year program for students aged 16 to 19. It is recognized as a qualification for entry to universities and colleges worldwide and focuses on academic rigour, personal development, and global perspectives.
Career-related Program (CP): This program combines the academic rigour of the DP with practical hands-on learning, geared toward students aged 16 to 19 who are interested in a career-related education.
IB World Schools adhere to the philosophy and educational principles of the International Baccalaureate. They undergo a rigorous authorization process to ensure they meet the program's standards and criteria. Schools that successfully complete this process are granted the status of an IB World School and are allowed to offer one or more of the IB programs. These schools are expected to implement the IB curriculum, assessment methods, and educational philosophy in their teaching practices.
The IB programs are known for their emphasis on inquiry-based learning, international-mindedness, critical thinking, and holistic education. They aim to prepare students to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who can contribute positively to a global society.SRV International School has been an Authorized IB PYP School since 2019
