Why choose the International Baccalaureate?

The IB originally began as a programme for globe-trotting students and their families. Today it is taught in 2,984 schools across 139 countries, with more than 830,000 students worldwide.

At GEMS Education our schools offer three high quality IB programmes for students aged 3 to 19. The curriculum is designed to help young people grow academically, personally, emotionally and socially. The goal? To educate students with the skills they need to thrive in a rapidly globalising world.

Focus: lifelong learning and personal growth

Our International Baccalaureate schools encourage children to become students for life as well as responsible, open-minded citizens of the world. The grand aim of the IB is to develop a lifelong love of learning in students, alongside an appreciation of diverse cultures and global points of view.
