What does this mean for MWPS?

Our school has applied to become a member of the IB World Schools. We are required to go

 through a rigorous application process. There is no guarantee that we will be accepted but we have applied for candidacy and will certainly do our best to meet the rigorous standards required.

If successful, we will then become part of this World Educational Framework that offers an exciting curriculum for your child.

The International Baccalaureate (IB)

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

IB’s mission and philosophy

The IB focuses on each student as a whole person.

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 programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Thus, IB programmes address not only cognitive development but social, emotional and physical well-being. The aim is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people with adaptable skills to tackle society’s complex challenges and who will help to make it a better, more peaceful world. IB programmes emphasize learning how to learn and teaching students to value learning as an essential, integral part of their everyday lives.
