AISPP incorporates the world-class educational system of the Australian National Curriculum and intertwines it with the internationally renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes.

Australian International School Phnom Penh is an International Baccalaureate (IB) PYP authorised school.

AISPP is also a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme, and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC).

Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Mission Statement from the IB

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. 

Please refer to the specific tabs for further detail on the programmes.
