Our students love us

Really very thorough. I so wish I had gotten this years ago. The introductory video was really useful. I like the videos at the beginning of each section. I liked the classroom examples for ATLs.
Sam Dawkins, MYP Language Acquisition
Using Ibtrove courses I was able to get all 20 of my IB teachers trained quickly with minimal disruption to their schedule. Plus we saved quite a bit of money which was the cherry on top.
Richard Gant, Principal
I absolutely loved the workbooks. I wish I had those workbooks when I started out as an MYP educator.
