Millard is proud to be the only district in Nebraska offering a kindergarten through 12th grade International Baccalaureate experience. The International Baccalaureate Organization is an international educational foundation founded in 1968 in Geneva, Switzerland. It was originally established to provide a common curricular framework for students of diplomats and military personnel. The program is designed to challenge students and to encourage growth in both personal and academic achievement. Students will:
- Be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning.
- Take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world.
- Become more culturally aware through the development of a second language.
- Be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
The International Baccalaureate® Mission
- International Baccalaureate, or IB as it is commonly called, aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
- To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.
- These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
