International Baccalaureate (IB)

A group of talented, forward-thinking teachers at the International School of Geneva, with assistance from several other international schools, created the IB Diploma Programme in 1968.

IB Authorization

Since 1999, ISSR has been authorized to offer the Diploma Programme. ISSR is also authorized for the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme as of spring, 2015. IB World Schools are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education which ISSR believes is important for our students.
