IB のプログラムは、世界各地で学ぶ児童生徒に、人がもつ違いを違いとして理解し、自分と異なる考えの人々にもそれぞれの正しさがあり得ると認めることのできる人として、積極的に、そして共感する心をもって生涯にわたって学び続けるよう働きかけています。

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.
