WHAT IS IB?
IB stands for International Baccalaureate. The IB offers an international education in four programmes: PYP (Primary Years Programme PK-5th grade), MYP (Middle Years Programme 6th-10th grade), DP (Diploma Programme 11th-12th grade), and Career Related Programme 11th-12th grade) that focus on teaching students to think critically and independently, and how to inquire with care and logic. The IB prepares students to succeed in a world where facts and fiction merge in the news, and where asking the right questions is a crucial skill that will allow them to flourish long after they’ve left our programmes. There are IB Programmes in over 5,000 schools in over 150 countries around the world.
At ARC, we offer two programmes: DP & CP.
