IB Mission

Started in 1985, George School’s IB Program is overseen by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) which, according to its mission statement, aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. These lifelong learners come to understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right—a philosophy that meshes perfectly with Quaker values.

“The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs 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.”
