What is the IB Programme

School Life

We offer a continuum of international education through three challenging, high-quality and globally recognised educational programmes to students aged 3 to 19.

These programmes, taught in over 97 countries, are separated into

  1. the Primary Years Programme (PYP),
  2. the Middle Years Programme (MYP)
  3. the Diploma Programme (DP).

The IB programmes encourage both personal development and academic achievement, challenging students to think critically, to ask the right questions and to think across disciplines. An IB education also fosters diversity, curiosity and a healthy appetite for learning. It is a firm grounding for life and opens doors to universities in Switzerland and around the world, as well as many other career possibilities.

Primary Years Programme
