About IBO The International Baccalaureate Organisation is a non-profit educational foundation registered in Switzerland that was established in 1968. The Diploma Programme was developed by a group of schools seeking to establish a common curriculum and a university entry credential for geographically mobile students. They believed that an education emphasising on critical thinking and exposure to various point of view would encourage intercultural understanding and accept- ance by young people. Grants from UNESCO the Twentieth Century Fund the Ford Foundation and other groups made it possible to further delvop the Diploma Program which is now offered by a wide variety of schools and accepted by universities around the world. The IBO offers three programs to schools : - The Primary Years Program - The Middle Years Program - The Diploma Program The Pioneer in International Education
