To help you make that decision, we've rounded up the schools offering the two curricula and looked at the programmes offered, their performance and cost.

Which schools offer all three IB programmes?

There are six full IB schools offering all three programmes including the IB Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years Programmes (MYP), and the (IBDP). The IB's three programmes were not actually designed as a continuum. Each is a standalone framework and curriculum, developed at different times and stages of the IB's evolution. Increasingly, the IB organisation is moving to provide an overarching framework for children from 11 through to 19. Even with this, however, it is not necessary, or even usual for a school to offer all programmes.

The following schools offer the IB continuum:

Canadian International School of Hong Kong
Elsa High School - Carmel School
Discovery College
Hong Kong Academy
Renaissance College
Victoria Shanghai Academy
