New Gate Montessori IB School - International Baccalaureate (IB) Program

We are very pleased to announce that NewGate Montessori School Sarasota, Florida has been named as an IB World School, and our secondary program is now authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

New Gate IB Programm Sarasota Florida It has strong appeal to both American college-bound students and international families, whose sons and daughters may wish to attend university in the US or abroad.
There are 3,725 International Baccalaureate (IB) schools today in 147 countries. Worldwide, some 1,166,000 students are enrolled in IB programs. In the US, many IB schools operate as special programs within large high schools, serving only those students who are extraordinarily focused and academically gifted. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students.

NewGate Montessori School Sarasota, Florida prepares students for life, university, their chosen careers, and their roles as citizens in an ever-changing global community. We enroll students from age 18 months through grade 12.
As an International Montessori School, NewGate is profoundly different from much larger, less personal, highly competitive conventional high schools and most IB Diploma Programs. Our approach combines the heritage of Montessori secondary education and current research into adolescent development, leading our students to the projected 21st century workplace skills and core knowledge that they will need in college and beyond. We focus on students as whole human beings, creating a balance between personal development and academics.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is challenging, but it is designed for a wide range of college-bound students, not only the most gifted. It challenges schools to excel in ways that represent under-standing and knowledge and in ways that are lasting and more meaningful than is currently measured on standardized tests. It helps students to grasp the underlying principles of each field of study. It encourages international understanding and respect, along with a clear appreciation of our own country.
