Parents now have a plethora of educational boards from which to enroll their children. The International Baccalaureate (IB School) curriculum is now highly regarded and recognized by all universities, in addition to the GCSE or IGCSE Certificate on both Cambridge and Edexcel.
It is a globally recognized educational system comprised of three educational programs:
- PYP stands for Primary Years Programme (Kindergarten to Class 5).
- MYP stands for Middle Years Programme (Class 6 to Class 10).
- DP stands for Diploma Programme (Class 11 to Class 12).
The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), a non-profit educational organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, established the IB program in 1968. Despite its Swiss headquarters, the IBO is an international organization that is not affiliated with any single country and is devoid of national political educational goals.
