IB and the Environment

The International Baccalaureate Program's philosophy is at the center of the school curriculum. The environment is used as an integrating context for learning across all subject areas. Students engage in inquiry-based units focusing on building global awareness and the application of scientific skills in all subject areas. As a Stamford Public School, the school offers a rigorous curriculum based on the National Standards.

The mission of the International Baccalaureate (IB) is " develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect."

The International Baccalaureate's overarching continuum emphasizes: student-centered inquiry-based learning experiences; foreign language instruction; an application of acquired skills and knowledge; a spirit of discovery and an enjoyment of learning.

IB encourages students to ask challenging questions, to discover new ways of learning, and to develop a sense of identity as global citizens in the 21st century.
