As part of the International Baccalaureate (IB), we have joined a family of international schools spread all over the world. In the Asia Pacific region, the IB is one of the fastest growing educational organisations, offering a curriculum that is well matched to the needs of international schools. We are proud to have joined this organisation at an important time in our own school development. We look forward to developing our school within the IB but also to further develop the special uniqueness that JIS itself, can offer.
The International Baccalaureate declares its mission to be:
'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.'
At J.I.S we feel that this compliments our own philosophy of education, so we look forward to developing our links with both the administration within IB and other IB World Schools, around the Asia Pacific region and the world.
Our curriculum is designed to be inquiry based, hands-on, internationally minded and skills orientated. We believe it offers excellent opportunities for our students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become educated, open minded, creative and confident members of tomorrow's world.
