International Baccalaureate (IB) Education

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them.  It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom.  Students in the International Studies and Dual Language Middle School at BDJMS are seeking candidacy to become an IB World School.  Students at IB Schools:


  • are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning;
  • become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language;
  • are able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing  world;
  • outperform their peers on state assessments;
  • have higher acceptance rates to colleges and universities
