International Schools with The IB Program

Much research has shown that the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme is the only unique program that builds a solid academic foundation and essential soft skills before entering the university. In Vietnam, the number of international schools offering IB programs is enlarging. To be authorized to teach the IB programs, schools need to meet the rigorous standards of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization. 

What is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a comprehensive curriculum with rigorous courses of studies addressing the needs of highly motivated students and providing an excellent foundation for further studying in prestigious universities. IB education programs are seen as a passport for becoming a global citizen and accessing advanced education.

The IB framework  is designed in line with the development of the world and meets the employer requirements. The International Baccalaureate (IB) graduates reflect strong critical thinking, research, time-management, communication, and presentation skills that are highly rated and essential attributes universities look for in their applicants. These are the attributes needed to succeed in higher education, work, and go beyond in the future.

IB is a highly challenging course that will be a solid foundation for students to succeed in the future through the extensive academic knowledge and vital skills gained from the program. It is the reason that many parents are very interested in the IB learning pathway to increase their children’s chances of getting into prestigious universities.

The IB identified a continuum and early education

The IB programme demonstrates connectivity and early education from the early years for students. Right from the Primary level (PYP), the IB programme not only focuses on imparting knowledge but also develops skills, thinking, and positive attitudes towards learning. PYP employs experiential learning methods and project implementation to encourage children’s curiosity and exploration.

Although IB programmes are designed to cater to each stage of students’ development, they are closely interconnected. For example, skills and values considered fundamental in the PYP programme can be further developed and expanded in higher-level IB programmes such as Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). The IB programme not only helps students access knowledge but also develops essential skills from the early years. Starting education from this age helps them develop logical thinking, communication skills, and cultural diversity from a very young age.

Who is the IB programme for?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme offers four programs for students aged 3 to 19 and ensures the continuum of learning: 

– IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP): for students aged 3 to 12. It is a student-centered approach to education that develop self-awareness, and essential soft skills and nurtures a passion for learning in children through transdisciplinary themes of flexibility and relevance to world issues.

– IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP): for students aged 13 to 16. The MYP builds on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes developed by the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), and motivates students to demonstrate creative thinking and critical skills, develop an understanding, and present their point of view on related research topics.

– IB Diploma Programme (IB DP): for students aged 16 to 19 and is a challenging two-year pre-university curriculum, globally recognized by more than 2.500 universities. DP graduates will have the chance to receive a scholarship and may be considered by the school for some credit exemption or reduction when attending universities.

– IB Career-related Programme (IB CP): for students aged 16 to 19, addressing the needs of students engaged in career-related education.
