What is IB?

IB programmes aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.

As an International Baccalaureate World School, MDIS shares a common philosophy with IB schools across the world: a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision. International Baccalaureate teaches students to think critically, creatively, ethically and globally and is recognized worldwide as the “gold standard” in pre-university preparation.

IB Programs Challenge Students to:

  • Be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
  • Become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
  • Take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world
  • Be able to engage with people in an increasingly rapidly changing world

With programmes for students in grades 1-12, we focus on the growth and development of the whole student, ensuring the social, emotional, physical, cultural, and academic development of our children. The IB framework, based on research and best practices from several national school systems, is continuously improving in order to offer students a relevant, engaging and challenging education that prepares them for college success.
