The educational philosophy of the IBO is expressed in its mission statement as revised in 2003:
The International Baccalaureate Organization 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 IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. Adopted from International Baccalaureate Organization (September 2000). “Making the PYP Happen".
