MYP FAQs What are the advantages of an IB education? IB World Schools (the only schools authorized to offer IB programmes) are subject to a strict accreditation process monitored by the IB, ensuring that schools provide a high-quality education. IB teaching methods and curriculums are research-based and draw from the best educational practices from systems around the world. IB teachers are required to participate in many professional development opportunities to continually promote their awareness of current educational practices and new thinking. IB programmes are recognized internationally and ease the educational transition of mobile students so that their education is not adversely affected if their families relocate.
