Chinese and Western Integration Curriculum
Unlike exam-oriented education, where exam results are important, IB promotes student - centred learning. Whist Knowledge and skills are part of an education, learning to "be a person" is fundamental. In contrast to some international education programs that promote westernisation, IB emphasises preserving its own traditions and encouraging children to learn their mother tongue and embrace their culture.
