Willams P-8 IB Programmes

The IB 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.

Williams IB Mission Statement

Williams School is committed to empowering students to become successful life long learners and leaders in an ever-changing world.  We will create challenging and developmentally appropriate learning experiences that emphasize intellectual rigor and high academic standards.  Personal integrity and democratic values will be fostered in our students to prepare them to become responsible, globally conscious learners and citizens.

What Does It Mean To Be IB

The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions

  • develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools

  • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts

  • develop multilingual students.
