    Here's the link for IB organization. http://www.ibo.org/

    I've actually never heard of IB curriculum until we moved to HK. Supposedly attending an IB school makes transition back to home country school easier as the standards are "higher & conform to international standards" (this was a comment made by a teacher during a school tour) . However, I know many schools in the US that are very substandard and any local school here can run circles around them, so take all claims with a grain of salt.

    that's great to hear as DD as starting aht HMT Vic this August. i've heard good and bad about the school, so it's good to get some positive feedback from existing parents.

    It is a very popular school for local family who want to send their kids to a band one schools. Apart from that, I dont see any reason why Victoria? Most of my friends kids who studies at Victoria cant speak English nor Chinese well. If you want to learn English properly, then why not ESF or the IS. If you want to learn Mandarin properly why not Kiangsu and Chiekang? I just think biligual program doesnt seems to work

    International Baccaulaureate is very popular in Europe.

    The UK has recently started giving schools the option of awarding A-levels or IB. If you have any IB qualifications, you can attend any university in the World, providing you get the grade for it.
