Our school is pursuing International Baccalaureate authorization, a distinction globally renowned for quality and excellence. Students become lifelong learners who thrive and make a difference.

World-class education 

The Bryan Allen Stevenson School of Excellence (BASSE) is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). Our school is pursuing authorization as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education—that we believe is important for our students.

BASSE believes that all students can and should have access to a curriculum that will prepare them for any form of post-secondary success, whether college or career. The IB aligns with our school’s approach and the adopted curricular standards of Delaware. BASSE is currently pursuing International Baccalaureate authorization for the IB Middle Years Programme and intends to pursue authorization for the Diploma Programme and Career-Related Programme.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Individualized learning

The IB curriculum is globally renowned for quality and excellence and encourages students to become lifelong learners who thrive and make a difference. To ensure each student receives the support they need, teachers use our students’ Personalized Learning Plans to create flexible and adaptable academic learning environments. Teachers also employ design thinking models when working with students. This is a non-linear, iterative process that fosters empathy, challenges assumptions, redefines problems, and creates innovative solutions.
