An international educational program that is rigorous and balanced and prepares students for University and adult life
The pedagogical team at Yago School has worked on the development of the Baccalaureate Educational Project which will have as its main objective giving pupils the best training, successes and results, skills, virtues and abilities that will help them to reach their potential and give them access to the best professional careers.
Our purpose is for pupils to develop their abilities and potential to the maximum, to build knowledge through projects, broaden their interests and their own experience using integrative, innovative and cooperative methodologies in traditional and technological environments so that they can adapt to University and successfully integrate into companies from all over the world.
In this decisive stage, our pupils will end up with different degrees, Spanish and international. In order to live in the interconnected and globalized world of the 21st century, a complete education, the ability to think critically, and international mentality are needed. Our rigorous project will guarantee excellent preparation for both higher education and adult life.
In May 2019, Yago School obtained authorisation to deliver the International Baccalaureate DIPLOMA programme and thus became one of the world’s exclusive IB schools.
Yago School now belongs to a global community of schools committed to training young people to become informed and curious individuals who are ready to face their future with success and to contribute to the creation of a better world.
What is the International Baccalaureate?
The International Baccalaureate Organisation (O.B.I.) is a non-profit educational foundation that was founded in 1968. Its origins lie in the joint effort of a group of international schools who wanted to establish a common curriculum, accredited by Universities, for the benefit of students who move from one country to another.
The vision for the educational model emphasises critical thinking, it stimulates intercultural understanding, and it fosters tolerance among young people. A complete curriculum was designed for the last two years of young peoples’ studies before accessing university that could be taught in any country and recognised by all the universities of the world. Thus the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme was born.
In addition to the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme, the O.B.I. offers a wide range of services: curriculum development and evaluation systems, professional training for teachers and research on topics related to international education.al model emphasises critical thinking, it stimulates intercultural understanding, and it fosters tolerance among young people.
