BBIS is fully authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in Geneva, Switzerland to teach all four IB programmes covering the 3 to19 age range. In grades 11 and 12 students have the opportunity to earn the IB Diploma, a qualification recognized by universities and colleges throughout the world. As of August 2011, high school students also have the option of earning the International Baccalaureate Career-related Certificate (IBCC), a professionally-oriented high school diploma course for 11th and 12th grade students.
The four IB programmes help students develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. They span the years from early childhood to pre-university and are available through about 3,160 IB World Schools in 140 countries.
The IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) for students aged 3 to 12 focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside.
The IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, achieved through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.
