International Baccalaureate (IB) Program

Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS), located just south of Calgary, is proud to be accredited as Southern Alberta’s first full IB World School, and Alberta’s only independent school, authorized to deliver IB Programmes in Kindergarten through Grade 12. STS is now amongst a select group of six percent of IB World Schools across the globe, and 1 percent of North American IB schools, offering a continuum of all three levels of IB programming.

Through the IB Programme, STS encourages students to become active and compassionate life-long learners – developing their own cultural and national identity, then broadening their intercultural understanding and respect – helping to create a more peaceful world, where they understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

The IB continuum also prepares students for success in post-secondary studies. Leading universities and colleges actively recruit IB graduates, often offering them credit or advanced standing for their work. IB is accessible to students in a wide variety of schools – national, international, public and private – and offers high-quality international education programmes to more than one million students, in 146 countries.

Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School offers the Primary Years Programme (PYP) to students in the Kindergarten to Grade 6, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for Grades 7-10, and the Diploma Programme (DP) to students in Grades 11 and 12.
