International Baccalaureate

Wilbur & McMahon Schools is proud to announce we are officially an IB World School! International Baccalaureate certified schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Little Compton believes is important for our students.

What is IB?


Mission and Philosophy

The IB focuses on each student as a whole person. Thus, IB programmes address not only cognitive development but social, emotional and physical well-being. The aim is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people with adaptable skills to tackle society’s complex challenges and who will help to make it a better, more peaceful world.


Middle Years Programme

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world and culminates in a personal project. Students who complete the MYP are well-prepared for high school and beyond.


IB Learner Profile

The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. These attributes, and others like them, can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national and global communities.
