What is International Baccalaureate?

international Baccalaureate® is a non-governmental organization, non-profit and allied to UNESCO that offers a continuous curriculum from 3 to 19 years.

Its origin is determined by the search for a curriculum that gives children and young people whose parents worked as diplomats or were displaced with international and multinational companies an internationally accepted training.

Initially, his program was aimed at high school students and hence his name. The term International indicates the ability to continue studies in other IB centers around the world. It does not mean that the teachings are taught in English.

The Schools that have implemented at least one of the International Baccalaureate programs® they are called "IB World Schools". The school San Fernando has been an IB World School since 2013, the year we were authorized to teach the Diploma Programme. Later, in 2020 and 2021, we acquired the authorization of the Middle Years Program (MYP) and the Primary Years Program (PYP).

La Teaching methodology Implying International Baccalaureate® in each of its programs it is very different from the traditional methodology.

To offer one or more of the International Baccalaureate educational programs®, colleges must complete an authorization process that is subject to ongoing review. In addition, teachers must receive special training that prepares them to teach their classes according to the IB methodology.


The educational programs of International Baccalaureate® they have a globalized approach, in which the student is constantly promoted who comes to knowledge and understands it in a broad context, so that he can relate what he has learned in real future situations.

The School San Fernando has opted for the implementation of three of the four programs offered by the Organization international Baccalaureate® and that are described in this section.

Note: The information contained in this section is a summary of what was published by the International Baccalaureate® en su web

The teaching of our programs does not focus on the exams: we are aware of the importance of the results, but we also know that the best results are obtained by allowing the students to develop their learning and participate in the curriculum.

The students are the fundamental element of our programs. They are taught to think for themselves and to be the architects of their learning process. For teachers, this is a reason for satisfaction; for the students, a constant stimulus.
