IB Statistics

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, focused on the student.

Our three programmes for students aged 3 to 19 help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.

 

Founded in 1968, we currently work with 3,035 schools in 139 countries to develop and offer three challenging programmes to over 854,000 students aged 3 to 19 years.

 

What makes the IB unique

  1. We offer a continuum of education, consisting of three programmes for students aged 3 to 19.
  2. We are proud of our reputation for high quality education sustained for over 35 years.
  3. We encourage international-mindedness in IB students. To do this, we believe that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity.
  4. We encourage a positive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to critically reflect, to develop research skills, to learn how to learn and to participate in community service.
  5. We ensure that our programmes are accessible to students in a wide variety of schools—national, international, public and private—through our unique relationship with IB World Schools worldwide.
