Aux États-Unis, vous pourrez suivre le programme du certificat du Baccalauréat International®, plus flexible, qui vous permet de passer les examens de l'IB uniquement dans les matières que vous maîtrisez le mieux. Dans ce programme, les matières complémentaires ne sont pas obligatoires, ce qui signifie que vous aurez plus de temps pour vous consacrer aux activités périscolaires ou à la préparation du TOEFL, de l'IELTS, du SAT ou de l'ACT.
We believe that a pupil’s school experience should be about more than just passing exams and jumping through hoops. Through the IB, we want to inspire our pupils to take an interest in a breadth of subjects and teach them not just what to think but how to think. School should be about an individual’s personal development and offer a life-long holistic preparation which will enable pupils to make a real difference in whatever field they choose.
