The IB (International Baccalaureate) is a worldwide recognized certification that stands for high quality education towards a better and more peaceful world through challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation that offers four programs for students aged 4 to 19. Focused on the students, the programs aim at developing the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a globalizing world.
Esfera Escola Internacional is authorized by the IB to offer the PYP Program, for students aged 3 to 11, from Preschool to Elementary School up to Grade 5. In 2013, the school communicated the teachers, students and parents its intention to apply for the MYP (Middle Years Program) certification.
Themes with local and global relevance broaden the students’ references and perspectives, as an important part of the differentiated program offered by the school.
