Wellspring Learning Community is the first IB Continuum World School in Lebanon and it is the realization of a belief that children of Lebanon deserve to study in a high quality learning environment.
Are you looking for an International Baccalaureate World School in Lebanon? Here you can find a list of Lebanese schools that have a profile in the IB World Schools Yearbook.
Schools offering the curriculums of France, Britain, the United States and the International Baccalaureate organisation predominate in Lebanon’s large and vibrant international education sector.
Bilingual schools, religious foundations, and home-grown education groups also play a prominent role in the market, with all private schools required to offer the Lebanese Baccalaureate alongside international qualifications.
Lebanon has 27 IB World Schools, of which 24 schools offer the IB Diploma. Three of these schools, Wellspring Learning Community, Al-Hayat International School and Eastwood International School, follow all three stages of the IB curriculum.
Education is compulsory from age six to 14, but UNESCO does not hold school enrolment statistics for Lebanon. Challenges that face the public school system include accommodating nearly 522,000 Syrian refugee children in the country, 30 per cent of whom have never been to school. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees provides a range of support programmes for such out-of-school children. The United Nations Relief and Works Association runs 65 schools for 39,144 Palestinian refugee children, who are not entitled to attend public schools in Lebanon.
