In December, In the last month of 2022, BIBS Kunming, Good news again!
The school has successfully won the IBO Full authorization of the secondary School Curriculum (MYP), Officially becoming a globally recognized IB World School, Kunming City even Yunnan Province, The first school to receive official IB MYP accreditation.
Six years of accumulation, BIBS Kunming,
PYP, MYP and DP are all officially certified by IBO. At this point, BIBS Kunming officially become Yunnan's first K- 12 IB World School!
Whether the school is accredited by the IBO will directly affect the children's education and development. Schools with official IB accreditation are able to transition smoothly to other IB programmes. Generally speaking, only schools that have passed the IB official accreditation will have their students' academic level recognized by IB schools around the world, and children can continue to participate in project-based learning after graduation from IB MYP, so that children's education can be seamless.
IB MYP is a programme launched by the International Baccalaureate Organization in 1994 for students aged 11 to 16. It aims to develop students into creative, critical and reflective thinkers who explore and identify the connections between different disciplines and gradually understand their place in the world. Students are encouraged to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, and the emphasis on knowledge synthesis, international culture and international exchange acts as a transition between IB PYP and IB DP.
IB MYP is based on the national education curriculum and integrates advanced teaching concepts and methods. The MYP curriculum of BIBS Kunming is people-oriented and integrates the national education curriculum. The curriculum covers five fields: environmental exploration, learning methods, community service, human creation, health and social education, and has eight disciplines: acquired language (second language), Language and literature (first language), personal and social, science, mathematics, art, physical education and health education, and design.
It not only attaches importance to the study of mother tongue Chinese, but also integrates traditional English teaching with subject knowledge teaching to cultivate students' ability to solve and think problems in English. Every subject is taught bilingually (except Chinese), with English accounting for more than 90% of the teaching.
2. Change from passive to active:
IB provides students with the opportunity to receive advanced international education and to adapt to the university education system faster and better. If you can maintain excellent performance, you can gather momentum for growth.
The IB program can not only help students to increase the admission rate of top universities, but also if students get high scores in the IB advanced level courses, they can be exempted from the courses, advance grades, and even apply for scholarships, thus saving the high cost of studying abroad.
4. High recognition:
The IB program is widely recognized by all major universities in the world. Students with IB certificates can directly apply to thousands of universities in more than 120 countries, which provides a wide range of countries to study in and maximizes the impact of changes in visa policies.

IB graduates have a clear advantage in applying to the world's top universities. The world's top universities, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cambridge, and Oxford, regard the IB as the most valuable high school diploma and give priority to students who pass the IB program.
Receiving this certification at the end of 2022 is undoubtedly the best New Year gift for every member of the BIBS Kunming Learning Community.
