We are delighted to announce that after a rigorous planning and application process, EBGIS has officially been accepted as a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education -- that we believe is important for our students.
Our achievement of candidacy is a critical step for EBGIS, as we are on track to launch our high school offering in the 2021/22 school year leading towards the highly regarded IB Diploma recognized by universities around the world.
We are thrilled that our rising eighth graders will be able to continue their education with us as our leading class of ninth graders in 2021/22, becoming our high school graduating class of 2025!
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
