Welcome To IB Schools Of Ontario

In 1999, the IBSO Association was formed by a group of 12 independent and public schools. At its earliest, the IBSO recognized its mandate to support the aims of the IB Organization and its mission statement (http://www.ibo.org/associations/). As the number of IB schools in Ontario grew, the association renewed its focus on supporting the individual spirit of the schools within the Ontario region.  

At present, the IBSO group of schools has grown to seventy six and encompasses independent, public and religiously affiliated schools. The IB Schools of Ontario has three branches with individual executives representing the Primary Year’s Programme, the Middle Year’s Programme and the Diploma Programme.

The  objectives of IBSO are to: support the goals and objectives of the IB Programme and its organization;  to communicate the IBO Mission to the communities we serve;  to provide a  liaison with the Ministry of Education and Training, universities and all other IB sub-regional groups; to support professional development within Ontario; to promote and organize IB staff and student activities; to promote research into the benefits of the IB programmes and examinations and to act as a clearing house for information concerning  and supporting new aspects and transitions in IB policy and pedagogy.
