The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme provides a unique learning education. Students around the world, and at Riverstone alike, expect to experience:

  • Independent thinking and self-driven learning models.
  • Better preparedness and academic understanding that attracts some of the world’s highest ranking universities.
  • The sensation of being a “global citizen” with more cultural awareness directly cultivated through the development of a second language.
  • The opportunity and ability to engage with peers and mentors in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world with strong academic, social and emotional characteristics.
  • Higher first-year retention and better success in college/at university, according to this research report published by a professor at the University of Wisconsin in January 2015.
