Agora International School Madrid is an authorised IB school. The IB is a well-respected international Diploma which is accepted as an access qualification at the most prestigious universities worldwide. This ensures that, not only do our students follow a two-year programme that provides them with a broad and intellectually rigorous qualification, but they are also in a position to apply to the international universities of their choice.
The IB Diploma aims to train students to become capable of reflective, analytical and critical thinking, to have a positive and passionate attitude towards learning and to acquire knowledge and understanding that will be relevant and useful throughout their lives. At Agora International School Madrid, the curriculum is arranged so that it is possible for students to study for both the Spanish National Baccalaureate and International Baccalaureate simultaneously.
Students who follow the IB courses develop a set of skills that are ideal for the pursuance of an international career. Our IB students are intellectually curious, highly reliable and responsible and demonstrate an openness towards and interest in other, cultures, languages, traditions and opinions. They are culturally aware, fluent in one or more foreign languages, capable of independent and critical thought and rigorous analysis, and have an exceptional aptitude for teamwork, cooperation leadership and social commitment. Our IB students communicate effectively with people from different cultures and countries, have a strong sense of respect and tolerance and are mature and responsible young people, fully prepared and excited by the prospect of taking their places in the wider international community.
