Blair was chosen to participate in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. There are three programs in which a school can participate, Diploma, Middle Years and Primary Years. The Blair International Baccalaureate School participates in both the Middle Years Programme for 6th through 10th grades and the Diploma Programme for 11th and 12th grades. These provide the framework for an integrated and international philosophy that is supported by academic rigor and opportunities to explore and learn about the world outside their immediate community.
The Middle Years Programme requires a thorough study of various disciplines. The emphasis is on students’ inter-relatedness. Teachers use criteria established by the IB to assess all student work. The IB provides external moderation to validate the school’s assessment standards.
Blair IB School is a fully authorized International Baccalaureate World School offering:
The Middle Years Programme is a program of international education designed to help students develop the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills necessary to participate actively and responsibly in a changing world.
The Diploma Programme is a rigorous and challenging two-year curriculum that leads to a qualification that is widely recognized and respected by the world's leading universities. Teachers use international criteria established by the IB Organization to assess all student work.
Authorized schools are visited and evaluated regularly by a team of professional educators reviews the delivery and effectiveness of the program and makes recommendations for improvement.
