Why IB Program?


Sandnes International School will become an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years Program and Middle Years Program. We will offer a continuum of high-quality, international education for grade 1-10.

The IB is a widely followed academic program in the international school world, and it has become increasingly popular in many national education systems, with 5,964 programmes being offered worldwide, across 4,583 schools.

The IB’s programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • encourages students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
  • develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools
  • encourages students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
    develop multilingual students.

Research has shown that that IB students perform well on international academic assessments, and often better than students on other programs.
