The IB Mission

“The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership and student achievement, working with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.”

The IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous academic curriculum that is an excellent preparation for university entrance around the world. Students are required to study six subjects: one science, one mathematics, one humanity, and two languages, plus an additional language or science or humanities subject. They also explore the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique “theory of knowledge” course. This allows for a breadth and depth of understanding that is appreciated by leading academic institutions globally. As part of the course, students also engage in CAS activities (Creativity, Activity, and Service) to nurture a complete international educational experience.

Benefits of the IB Diploma

Research shows that graduates the from IB Program, when compared to other academic qualifications at the age of 16-19, generally benefit from:

  1. A better choice of university
  2. A wider breadth of subject knowledge than other pre-university programs
  3. Advanced critical thinking and independent learning skills
  4. A healthy and globally-minded worldview

We believe that our innovative approach to education inspires each student to discover their strengths within a community of future leaders.

Any Lebanese student currently enrolled in the Lebanese Program (with or without a foreign passport) can switch to the IB Program after acquiring the Lebanese Brevet Official Certificate.

International Program (Y9-Y10)

International Programme (IP) Y9 - Y10

This program offers an opportunity for English speakers to join the school. Based on content and methods similar to the English Cambridge International Education Program and qualifications. The International Program is tailored for local and international families who seek a holistic approach to education for their child or children: intellectual challenges and rigorous academics, as well as mindfulness and a global perspective. The IP feeds into the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Years 11 and 12.

The IP is based on the Cambridge curriculum but with an International Baccalaureate focus: conceptual, inquiry-based learning, local/global context, and a strong focus on critical thinking.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy — a commitment to high-quality, challenging, and international education — that we believe is important to shaping well- rounded students.
