IB: An education for the future
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) offers a curriculum that is universally accepted by higher education institutions throughout the world.
IB programmes are demanding on the learner, but also on the training and assessment of teachers, who have at their disposal high-quality professional development activities, innovative educational frameworks and pedagogy recognised by the world's most prestigious universities.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a model for the future that develops students' key competencies for academic, professional and personal success, enabling them to achieve their goals in an international context. Agora Granada College International is an authorised centre for the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) and is an applicant centre to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP) at Primary stage.. As an IB World School, it is an investigative, reflective, active and creative centre in a constant process of improvement which aims to educate students who are committed to their future and the world around them.At Agora Granada College, as at Agora Príncipes Infant School, teaching how to learn to be, teaching how to learn to be, teaching how to learn to think and teaching how to learn to learn are the challenges we set ourselves every day. And we do this by providing pupils with suitable channels for the development of their activity, through programmes of intellectual work techniques adapted to different ages.
In ancient Greece there was a concept called "Areté" which we could translate today as orientation to excellence, i.e. the ability to think, speak and act successfully in order to be an exemplary citizen. In our schools we keep this spirit alive and we do so by educating our students in a holistic way.
Each pupil develops his or her abilities to the maximum by growing in all aspects: sensitivity, affectivity, reasoning, will. We educate the body and the spirit, the senses and the intelligence, the heart and the character; we educate through sport, through music and through science. We educate in excellence. That is why we are working on an academic model for the future focused on bilingual education, sports, technology, multiculturalism, as well as the values and responsibilities that all this entails. In other words, a comprehensive education that prepares our students to be global citizens who can shape the world.
