The IB claims to be motivated to create a better world through education. This attitude is reflected in the IB mission statement:
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.IBO.org
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.
Similarly to the IB, Nazareth High School deeply believes that education is the means to creating a better world and emphasizes that education should go beyond mere academic development, cherishing the need for compassion and reflection upon oneself. This means that through education we strive to encourage awareness beyond the individual and their most immediate community.
Additionally, we extend the IB mission statement by incorporating the values promoted by the school, i.e. we aim to bring up new generations in a system of education based on the personalistic concept of the human being as proclaimed by the Catholic Church and in accordance with Christian values, enabling the pursuit of their education to higher levels and an active participation in social life.
