The IB is more than its educational programmes and certificates. At our heart we are motivated by a mission to create a better world through education.
We promote intercultural understanding and respect, not as an alternative to a sense of cultural and national identity, but as an essential part of life in the 21st century.
All of this is captured in our 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.

At Willow Canyon High School, we take pride in offering our students an education they can be proud of, an education that prepares them for university and beyond. Our teachers are experts in the field and have the experience to assist any student in achieving success. We partner with parents to ensure that our students make the most of their education. Our track record speaks for itself. Our program has grown into a driving force in the school community. Students opt to attend our high school over their home school with some students traveling from other district boundaries so as to achieve the dream of obtaining an IB diploma. We continue to add more courses to meet our diverse students' needs. Come give us a chance! You won't be disappointed!
