The IB is now more than 4,000 schools in 159 countries.  It has certainly made an impact since it was launched in 1968. From prime ministers to astronauts, teachers to filmmakers, an IB education has developed generations of inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who seek to create a more peaceful world.  

In the build-up to the IB’s 50th anniversary in 2018, the IB blog will share their greatest achievements, champion the relevance of an IB education for future generations and educate the world on what an IB education represents – increasing understanding among people and changing perceptions.
