The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an alternative approach to the standard educational curriculum. The IB as it is known, delivers high-quality education based on international standards.

The curricula of the IB’s four programmes extend beyond academic instruction, fostering intellectual, emotional and social development. The IB programmes help students develop into knowledgeable, competent, respectful and caring citizens who possess the skills necessary to thrive in today’s globalised world.

The IB program is offered at over 4700 schools worldwide. Schools that partner with the IB to offer these programmes are called IB World Schools.

The IB has been offered in Singapore since 1977. As of October 2017, there are 34 IB World Schools in Singapore that serve as an excellent option for expat kids, local children, and their families (see SchoolViews’ take on four advantages of the International Baccalaureate (IB) here).

With so many options available, it helps to have all the information in one place. Schoolviews.com has compiled the table below to give you a quick picture of the schools in Singapore that offer the IB and which of the four programmes are available at each school. All programs are offered in English. Thirty-one of the 34 schools are private – the three state schools are marked with an asterisk (*).
