Uptown School is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School for the IB Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC).

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. 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.
Aligned purposefully to the IB philosophy, Uptown School provides an outstanding education in a nurturing environment, inspiring every student to achieve their full potential and excel.
The Uptown School Vision:
United To Succeed
