**Mission Statement from the IB
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.
