To date, IB is now offered in more than 3,400 schools around the world. IB is famed because of its high standards when it comes to critical thinking and creativity amongst its students. IB schools are different because students here are responsible for their own learning. That means that they will choose their topics and devise their projects. Teachers will serve as their mentors and supervisors.

Apart from choosing the topics and devising projects, students are also encouraged to learn from their classmates or peers. IB believes that critiquing each other’s work will push the students into excellence. IB also inspires students to express their feelings by means of writing and community service. In general, IB seeks to create a more peaceful and better world by educating their students.
