An International Baccalaureate School

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.

IB’s goal, in concert with Newman’s, is to encourage students to understand subjects in depth, think critically, and ask challenging questions, while moving beyond their courses and classrooms to further broaden their experience with community service. Without having to adhere to state and federal standardized tests, the IB program provides teachers with the freedom to teach creatively and to the needs of their students.

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 well for success in the next steps of their education and beyond in the global workplace.
