The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) is a prestigious, internationally recognised qualification that guarantees our students' global readiness and higher mobility. The course also has some significant benefits such as nurturing independent, critical and analytical thinking, community involvement, linguistic fluency and an awareness of international issues.The IB Diploma Programme sets the standards by which we can ensure the students are able to access the world’s top universities. In addition, a larger proportion of IB students go to university or higher education than from other baccalaureates. In Spain, students who have the International Baccalaureate Diploma do not need to sit University Entrance Exams (Selectividad), as they are able to validate their IB Diploma degree to gain access.
Skills for international career development
Furthermore, as a differentiating element we have introduced the Kognity platform in the IB subjects at Agora Lledó International School. This platform allows the students to access theoretical and practical learning material specifically for these subjects, while it also serves as an additional means of work and communication with their teachers making for on-going personal assessment throughout the course.
Agora Lledó International School is authorised to teach the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB). Thus, it is expanding the number of academic programmes of the International Baccalaureate to the rest of the formative stages to instil from the beginning of the educational journey the values of IB schools: a common philosophy that is based on the commitment to improve teaching and learning through programmes of high quality international education. These programmes encourage students from all over the world to have an active learning attitude throughout their lives.
To sum up, the International Baccalaureate is an English/Spanish bilingual programme that enables students develop the optimum abilities for going on to an international degree: cultural awareness and sensitivity, fluency in a foreign language, independent thought, capacity to analyse, teamwork, social commitment, and so on. This all means that our IB students go on to become true citizens of the world with an open mind to other cultures and opinions.
