IB World School

IB Diploma ProgrammeThe International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme has been offered at EARJ since 1982, contributing to make our institution one of Latin America’s most respected international teaching institutions.

EARJ is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate® Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme, and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy — a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.


Mission Statement

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.
