Report
Advanced Placement
International Baccalaureate
"For many years the IB has played an important role in changing
the lives of students through a strong academic curriculum. IB
programmes engage students in an international education
that provokes a greater acceptance and understanding of the
world around them. I am delighted to see such a forward-looking
organization setting its future strategy in a way that will enable
more students to benefit from an IB education .“
- Carol Bellamy, Chair of the IB Board of Governors
“Thus, even more compelling than the rigorous process of developing AP is the
effect of AP on the lives of the students who pursue AP programs. Studies—and
the testimony of students — demonstrate the vital role Advanced Placement
plays in students developing a clear understanding of college-level academic
expectations and a lasting passion for and engagement with academic
disciplines in which they often eventually major.”
