Through the International Baccalaureate, pupils at Agora Lledó International School learn to ask questions, to develop their confidence and to set themselves goals. These are all key things which will help them to pursue their personal aspirations and develop the perseverance necessary to make their dreams a reality.
International Baccalaureate pupils learn to think independently and drive their own learning. Study of a second language helps them to relate to other people in our globalised, ever-changing world, and to access the most prestigious universities worldwide.
Thanks to the International Baccalaureate, pupils at Agora Lledó International School develop their social skills and culture with people from different parts of the world, with different points of view. At our school, we believe that success resides in knowing how to communicate and build relationships with others, regardless of race, religion and customs.
They’ll tell you about it
Through the International Baccalaureate, our pupils increase their skill set and learn to put into practice the values we instil in pupils at our international school. These values are: cultural awareness, fluency in another language, autonomous reasoning, critical and realistic analysis, teamwork and social commitment. Thanks to these fundamental principles, pupils who study the International Baccalaureate at Agora Lledó International School learn to live and act with people of different cultures and nationalities. Respect and tolerance for others becomes part of their life philosophy.
“The International Baccalaureate provides pupils with a unique, critical and holistic vision of the reality which surrounds them. It equips pupils with a critical and innovative spirit which enables them to access the world of university, and facilitates their joining the working world, offering them strategies to ensure that they are socially active and ethically responsible.”
“I am in my second year of Aerospace Engineering at Ohio State University. The first year was very difficult but I was able to finish it with very good academic results (3 out of 4 average). This University is one of the 40 best in the world rankings and one of the 15 best for the degree I am studying. I am here, among other things, thanks to the International Baccalaureate which I studied at school. The admissions process was very difficult and an international point scale like the IB helped me a lot.”
“Throughout the two years of the IB course, the pupils face academic research challenges, achievable for their age and abilities, but similar in style and difficulty to tasks at higher academic levels. These are challenges in which they will perfect their analytical capacity and critical view of reality, and the different discourses generated with this. They will improve their decisiveness in the search, selection and contrast of information from different sources, as well as in evaluating their validity. They will develop the strategies of expression necessary to produce high level academic texts.”
