IB Schools Of Ontario

The growth of IB programs in Ontario led a group of 12 independent and public schools to establish IB Schools of Ontario (IBSO) in 1999. Since its beginning IBSO pursued its goals of working with Ontario schools to strengthen IB programmes in the province together with supporting the aims of IBO. As the number of IB schools in Ontario continued to grow, IBSO renewed its focus on supporting the individual and collective spirit of IB schools within the Ontario region.

Currently IBSO has 99 member schools coming from the public, independent and religiously affiliated sectors in Ontario. PYP, MYP and DP Committees within IBSO actively work with schools to support programme related PD and enhance networking among schools.

IB Schools of Ontario is committed to the following objectives:

  • Strengthen the IB Mission in our organization and in our member schools
  • Support professional development in our IB member schools
  • Promote and organize opportunities for teacher and student interactions within the larger Ontario IB community
  • Act as a liaison with the IB, the Ontario Ministry of Education and Training, as well as with university partners.
  • Act as a liaison with other IB Associations to support development of IB programmes within Canada
  • Promote research into the benefits of IB learning in the four IB programmes
  • Provide all stakeholders with the most current information about developments and changes in IB policy, pedagogy and programmes.

Vision: Collaborating to advance and support IB Education.

Mission: IBSO is committed to empowering learning communities to connect, grow and celebrate to further the IB mission: inspiring lifelong learning by building relationships, fostering growth mindset and providing opportunities for all learners to transform their own educational experiences.
