What’s the difference?

The Goal of the Sofara International Charter School is to infuse, throughout all aspects of the school, the International Baccalaureate philosophy and educational model that has been an academic standard around the world for generations. "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 programs of in international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right." ~ The IB Mission Statement, IBO.org The International Baccalaureate (IB) educational model, which is normally reserved for private school students, offers exciting possibilities to public school children and would provide a new way of viewing who they are, how the world interrelates, and their place within it.
