International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a worldwide network of schools committed to creating a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Students in IB programs think critically, ask challenging questions, and consider both local and global contexts. 

As the only school in Portland authorized by IB for preschool through 8th grade, French International uses the IB as a framework for delivering our curriculum in a language immersion setting. The IB is an integral piece in fulfilling our Mission and developing inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people.
