International Baccalaureate Program
We must no longer consider ourselves as citizens of the towns or cities in which we teach, but we must consider ourselves citizens of the globe.

** IB Mission Statement
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The IB Middle Years Program challenges students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world while providing a framework of learning. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, Kildonan has chosen to base our curriculum for the middle years on the Middle Years Program (MYP), representing the world standard for international education. The IB develops critical, creative and reflective thinking, fosters the disposition of international mindedness and nurtures student confidence, self-belief and self-discovery. At its core, the IB curriculum enables students to understand themselves as learners—and as global citizens.
