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 IB Preschool through Grade 8 school in Bend, Seven Peaks uses the IB as a framework for delivering standards and curriculum. The IB is an integral piece in fulfilling our school’s mission to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who can thrive in a complex world.

Seven Peaks is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary YearsProgramme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
