What is International Baccalaureate Candidate School Status?

Unisus School is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Unisus is also 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 (DP)

  • The IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC).

**Mission Statement from the IB
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who
help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end
the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging
programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students
across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people,
with their differences, can also be right.

Please note: Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
