My DC is has chosen a middle school with an IB program. I plan on doing some reading about it over the next few weeks but would love to hear the opinions and experiences of our Mothering community. Thanks!

I have a friend whose daughter studied this curriculum. I'll invite her to come share what she knows,

My dd's school has the IB Primary Years Program (elementary school) in a full Mandarin immersion environment.  I love the IB for elementary school.  It's inquiry based, so there's a broad topic like "people use transportation in different ways" or "animals live in different habitats."  The students come up with questions about the topic and the teacher uses the questions to guide the inquiry.  I think it's great for teaching critical thinking.  I don't know much about the middle years program, however.  Our school doesn't have a middle school.
