The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
Since 1968 the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) has been offering a challenging pre-university programme for students around the world. The IBO now offers 4 programmes to provide “a truly international education” (IBO.org) to over 1 million students in almost 4000 private and state schools. There is increasing evidence that an IB education really does benefit students as they go into higher education and careers. A 2011 report by the UK Higher Education Statistics Agency for example states, “IB leavers were more likely to be employed in graduate level jobs and in higher paid occupations than A level and equivalent leavers. “ (HESA 2011).
At Wellspring Learning Community, we are proud to be the sixth IB Diploma school in Lebanon and the first to offer the full IB continuum PYP, MYP and DP. We are also proud to offer the diploma to all eligible students; through pioneering the use of online courses in Lebanon we are able to offer a wide range of subjects to suit the needs of our students. All students, and their parents, can be sure of our full support whether they are following the full diploma or the DP Courses. It is our belief that all students should have the opportunity to benefit from this innovative, internationally minded programme.
