The Guild of IB Schools of the Northeast (GIBS) is an Association of International Baccalaureate World Schools in North America representing schools in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont and Eastern Pennsylvania.

Our Mission is to promote and develop International Baccalaureate Programs in our region of the United States.

Join us in-person this fall in Mystic, CT for the 2024 GIBS conference! The theme of this year's conference is "Building Resilient Learners." 

The keynote session is "Telling Our Stories of Resilience" delivered by Amy Baldwin. What are the stories we tell and how can they have an impact on our and others’ wellbeing? This interactive workshop grounds the discussion of resilience and storytelling in the recent research on growth mindset and belonging and offers practical strategies for helping you and your students create a story of academic and personal success.
