About us

What is the IB Community blog?

The IB’s mission is to make the world a better and more peaceful place through education. On the IB blog, we share opinions, stories and innovative developments in international education from educators, students, and opinion makers—from inside and outside the IB community—that demonstrate how our mission comes to life. The views and opinions expressed here represent the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the International Baccalaureate.

Who is the blog for?

Parents and students: hear from IB students and alumni to find out what you can expect from an IB education, including helpful advice and tips to prepare you for assessment as well as your transition to higher education or alternative career path.

Educators: gain and share best practice for the classroom, discover research and innovative developments to inspire your day-to-day teaching and your own personal development.

Policy-makers: find case studies about governments implementing the IB curriculums and stories of IB alumni, students, and teachers who contribute to and benefit from their community through their service learning and action.
