Based upon the fact that I had never heard of the International Baccalaureate Degree, I had to look it up. What I found was that it is a mode of education provided to students, ages 3-19, which focuses upon learning how to live in a global society. Two of the links I found most beneficial are:

You can google it to find out more. Basically, in Europe it is an alternative system of completing school that is recognised internationally. It focuses on a wide range of subjects and is said by some to be more comprehensive and to involve deeper engagement of critical skills than other national systems of education.

Degree is a little misleading.  It is actually more of a diploma in most places.  The idea is that it is an internationally recognized program, and students can get college credit for a year or two's worth of classes if they finish the program.  It is similar to Advanced Placement.
