International Mindedness

“The 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.”

— IB Learner Profile

“These programmes encourage students across the world to become compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.”

— IB Mission Statement

The IB Diploma Programme fosters international mindedness in many ways, two of which are curricular in nature: the Group 1 requirement to study three works of literature in translation in IB English; and the Group 2 requirement that students undertake study of an additional language.
