International Baccalaureate (IB)
The International Baccalaureate program is a challenging curriculum offered in high schools around the world that is designed to prepare students for advanced work in many countries’ postsecondary systems. Because it is international, the curriculum is not always as closely aligned with courses in American colleges and universities as Advanced Placement courses, and students and teachers often choose topics within a fairly wide range. Students frequently conduct independent projects as part of the curriculum. Many subjects have both Standard Level and Higher Level versions, which typically require additional specialized research or independent work. International Baccalaureate assessments are conducted worldwide, so that an American student’s work may be evaluated by a teacher in Singapore or vice-versa, and they often include substantial long-answer components or assessment of student research projects or portfolios.
