Academics / IB®

IB® is education for a better world, and at Uplift,
EVERY child is an IB® scholar.

Academics: International Baccalaureate® For All

We decided long ago that the International Baccalaureate ® (IB) would be our academic program for all grades.  What is IB®?  The IB® programs develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. Along with strong academics, IB® students learn to be aware of and care about the world around them.
