The International Baccalaureate® (IB) offers a curriculum that is universally accepted by higher education institutions throughout the world. The programme delivers broad-based, academically demanding courses for students, who are guided along this journey by highly qualified, professional teachers working within an innovative educational framework. The IB qualification is welcomed by the world’s most prestigious universities.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a forward-thinking educational model that focuses on developing key competences and helping students to work towards achieving academic, personal and professional success within an international context. Students are encouraged to think independently and to be self-motivated in their learning. Learning in different languages helps pupils to develop greater cultural awareness and enables them to relate to others in an increasingly globalised and constantly changing world.
Agora Portals International School was the first school in the Balearic Islands certified to deliver the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) at Post 16 level, and around 200 students have already graduated.
