About IB World School

The International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers internationally acclaimed academic programmes recognised at top universities around the world and in 142 countries.

International School Brescia is proud to offer two IB programmes – the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for ages 3 to 11 and the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) for ages 11 to 16. In addition to this from September 2018 we are a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme for ages 16-19.

The IB Learner Profile underpins everything we do and helps students become responsible global citizens.
The IB excels over other curricula enabling students to:
  • be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
  • take part in programmes of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world
  • become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
  • be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalised, rapidly changing world.* http://www.ibo.org/benefits/benefits-for-students/
