International Baccalaureate (IB)
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced program of education that prepares students in grades 11-12 for effective participation in a rapidly globalizing world and for postsecondary success in college and career. Students study at least two languages and increase understanding of diverse cultures. Due to its rigorous nature, preparation for the IB Diploma Programme is offered through the IB Middle Years curricula in the 9th and 10th grades or through other accelerated curricula. The IB diploma leads to advanced standing in universities throughout the world. The IB Diploma Programme framework includes required courses within six subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences and Computer Science, Mathematics, and Arts. Schools tailor course sequences to meet each school’s focus. All students applying to these programs must meet the following eligibility criteria: 3.0 GPA and Algebra I or Algebra I Honors and Spanish or French for high school credit are recommended.
