Students studying for IB program

We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy, a commitment to high-quality challenging international education, that we believe is important for our students.

“Another Milestone for BESGB”

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is for students aged 16-19. It will be offered at BESGB for Lebanese and non-Lebanese students starting Grade 11, as of September 2022.

The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. The IBDP is a comprehensive and balanced 2-year pre-university curriculum and assessment system that requires learners to study courses across all disciplines.

Through careful subject selection, learners may tailor their course of studies to meet their needs. However, regardless of the subject selection, all learners will explore the connections between the six major subject areas, will study each subject through an international perspective, will reflect critically on what it means to be a ‘knower’, will pursue one subject in great detail through independent research, and will have an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in local and community outreach.

Any Lebanese student currently enrolled in the Lebanese Program (with or without a foreign passport) can switch to the IB Program after acquiring the Brevet Official Certificate.
