ACADEMIC PLAN

The International Baccalaureate®

Fundacion Laureles implements the knowledge of the IB Program in its educational models; our primary and secondary students enjoy the benefits of the PEP and MYP models (IB programs) through SAMI; This methodology prepares students to be active, inclusive, participatory with the world around them and with a lifelong learning attitude. It educates them to respect their environment and encourages them to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. In addition, our CEB has the IB Certification in the Diploma Program (DP) awarded by the International Baccalaureate (IB).

The International Baccalaureate DP is intended for young people aged 16 to 19 and is distinguished by:

  • Encourage students to think critically and question.
  • Encourage them to examine the national and international environment.
  • The IB maintains independence from the educational frameworks and curricula of different countries.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) collaborates with prestigious universities to increase recognition of IB programs, conduct research on the impact on IB education that serves as a basis for development of our programs.

IB education promotes international-mindedness by helping students reflect on their own perspectives, cultures and identities, and those of others. By learning to appreciate different values, beliefs and experiences, and to think and collaborate across cultures and disciplines, members of the IB learning community gain the understanding necessary to progress towards a better future. more peaceful and sustainable world.


GOALS:

IB education expands the development of international-mindedness through multilingualism. In all IB programs, students study at least 2 languages ​​or study in more than one. We believe that communication in more than one language provides excellent opportunities to develop mutual understanding and intercultural respect. Thus, students recognize that their language, culture and worldview are not the only ones.

Fosters international-mindedness with a focus on global engagement and meaningful community work. These elements challenge students to critically examine power and privilege and recognize that they are responsible for protecting the planet and its resources for future generations. They also place the same emphasis as all IB programs on action: going beyond knowledge and understanding to make commitments, take action, and achieve meaningful change.
