IB is the International Baccalaureate, an international organization dedicated to the enrichment of young people through the development of the whole child in an internationally-minded environment.  The IB offers three programs of education, the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme (currently offered in St. Johns County only at Pacetti Bay Middle) and the Diploma Programme (currently offered in St. Johns County at both Nease and Pedro Menendez High Schools).

IB’s Mission Statement

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.
