Teranga Center News: International Baccalaureate...What’s in a Name?





ISD is fortunate to be an IB World School. With the International Baccalaureate there are 4 different programs. At ISD we offer three of the programs: The Primary Years Program, The Middle Years Program, and the Diploma Program. In the past, when we began with the Diploma Program, many people referred to the Diploma as “IB”. This is actually a misnomer. All of the programs exist under the umbrella of the IB. So when we hear people refer to PYP, that is the IB Primary Years Program. The MYP is the IB Middle Years Program, and DP is the IB Diploma Program. All three programs are currently being offered at ISD and our students are becoming more well-rounded global citizens because of it.
