Brief Introduction to IBO国际文凭组织简介The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, focused on the student.The four 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, IB currently works with 3,924 schools in 147 countries to develop and offer four challenging programmes to over 1,230,000 students aged 3 to 19 years.The Middle Years Programme for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, achieved through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.IB offers a continuum of education, consisting of four individual programmes. IB spans the years from kindergarten to a pre-university diploma. While it is traditionally known for the Diploma Programme, IB World Schools increasingly offer all four programmes.IB has reputation for high quality education sustained for over 45 years. Our curriculum represents the best from many different countries rather than the exported national system of any one. Its challenging Diploma Programme assessment is recognized by the world's leading universities. It maintains high standards by actively training and supporting teachers, and by authorizing and evaluating IB World Schools.IB encourages international-mindedness in its students. To do this, it believes that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity. All IB students learn a second language and the skills to live and work with others internationally—essential for life in the 21st century.IB encourages a positive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to reflect critically, to develop research skills, and to learn how to learn. It encourages community service because it believes that there is more to learning than academic studies alone.IB ensures that its programmes are accessible to students in a wide variety of schools—national, international, public and private—in 147 countries. These IB World Schools form a worldwide community in which there is no such thing as a “typical” school (more than 50% of IB students are in state-funded schools). IB World Schools cooperate in curriculum development, student assessment and the governance of the IB, making this a unique international collaboration.IB learner profileThe aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.国际文凭学习者培养目标所有国际文凭教育项目的目标均在于培养具有国际情怀的人，他们承认人类共有的博爱精神，分担守护地球的责任，帮助开创一个更美好、更和平的世界。As IB learners we strive to be:国际文凭学习者努力使自己成为：Inquirers We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research.
