- The International Baccalaureate aims to develop supportive, well-rounded and knowledgeable learners who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
- To reach this goal, the organisation works hand-in-hand with schools, governments and international organisations to create and develop challenging international education programmes and a rigorous assessment methodology.
- These programmes encourage students from all over the world to adopt an active learning attitude throughout their whole lives, to be compassionate and to accept the opinion of others despite their differences.

The main objective of this programme is to achieve a balance between the knowledge, conceptual comprehension, personal attitude and responsible actions the students have acquired.
