The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is “an academically challenging and balanced program of education that prepares students for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students.” A student can take one IB course, a few, or elect to pursue an entire course of study.

Looking at the image to the right, one can see a globe with many layers surrounding a core. The heart of the IB can be found in its Learner Profile, which informs the outlook of both curriculum and instruction. This profile describes an IB learner: Inquirers, Thinkers, Knowledgeable, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, Reflective. Notice that only portions of the Learner Profile are strictly “academic.” The IB and North Broward share the same goal of developing more than just a traditional student. As well, we believe in developing these qualities not only in the students but also in the faculty.
