Journey with us into how creativity is explored and how it is applied in context to real-world issues impacting students.
International Baccalaureate (IB)
Through the challenging, inquiry-based, student-centered, globally-minded framework of the International Baccalaureate, we develop well-rounded, critical thinkers and global citizens who think and see the world differently. The IB plays an integral part in fulfilling ISDenver’s mission, and in developing compassionate and curious global citizens.
ISDenver uses the IB as a framework for delivering our curriculum in a language immersion setting - currently as we go through the Primary Years Programme (PYP) authorization process, and in our fully authorized Middle Years Programme in our Middle School (G6-G8).
International School of Denver is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.**
*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.
**Mission Statement from the IB: 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.
