IBO Blogs for Teachers, Counselors, Students, and Parents
The International Baccalaureate Organization was founded in Switzerland in 1968 for the purposes of creating an internationally recognized university admission qualification. There are four sections of the IBO (PYP for elementary school, MYP for middle school, and the Diploma Programme & Career-Related Programme for high school) with SSIS offering the Diploma Programme for Grade 11 and Grade 12 students. SSIS allows students to choose either the full-IB Programme or be an IB Courses students taking at least one IB course.
The offical blog of the IBO is a way to provide information for students and parents on issues ranging from the 50th anniversary of the IBO to college admissions to cognitive research to teacher pedagogy. If you have specific questions about the IB Diploma Programme, or the IBO in general, please contact the IB Diploma Programme Coordinator at ibdp_coordinator at ssis.edu.vn.
