We are thrilled to announce that Keystone School has officially become a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme! This significant milestone marks our commitment to providing an exceptional, globally-recognized education to our students.

As an IB candidate school, we are now on the path to offering the IB curriculum, renowned for its academic rigour, focus on critical thinking, and emphasis on developing global citizens. This aligns perfectly with our mission to nurture well-rounded, inquisitive, and compassionate individuals who are prepared to excel in a rapidly changing world.

We are dedicated to implementing the IB programme with the highest standards and look forward to the enriching experiences and opportunities it will bring to our school community.

Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this exciting journey towards becoming an authorized IB World School!

Keystone School is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma 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.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Mission Statement from the IB

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.

As we end the 2023-2024 school year and begin to prepare for the next academic year, we are excited to be an IB candidate school. We are looking forward to the journey ahead!
