An International Baccalaureate School


Newman’s International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum inspires students to:

  • understand subjects in depth
  • think critically
  • ask challenging questions
  • move beyond their courses and classrooms to further broaden their experience with community

"The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  It encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right."


  • The Newman School is one of  just three independent schools in Massachusetts to offer the International Baccalaureate Program.
  •  A highly regarded, academically rich and rigorous program of study
  • The ultimate goal is to inspire students to view their subjects and their impact from an intercultural perspective and as a citizen of the world.
  • With IB, Newman prepares its students for success in the next steps of their education and beyond in the global workplace.
