International Baccalaureate School

Mayfair is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. Our instructional program follows the philosophy of IB programming. IB seeks to have students develop a greater awareness of their self, neighborhood, and world.

Our Mission

Mayfair’s mission is to expose its students to educational opportunities grounded in multiculturalism in order to develop all students as critical thinkers with a global perspective while providing a safe, nurturing learning environment and building leadership capacity.

The IB Mission

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 programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
