International Baccalaureate

About International Baccalaureate (IB)

In 1965, in Switzerland, the International Baccalaureate Organization set out to establish a program of studies that would assure quality educational standards for students studying in international schools throughout the world. Today, the IB program is offered at 1,341 schools in 112 countries.

The IB program is designed for academically able students who desire a curriculum that presents subject matter from a worldwide perspective. Students who are highly motivated and productive will benefit from this course of study. Students are admitted for 9th grade through an application process, which begins in November of their 8th grade year. The application process includes current grades, teacher recommendations, and evidence of motivation to help direct the course of study. All interested students are encouraged to apply. Students who complete the IB Program earn a high school diploma and the internationally recognized IB Diploma. Students may earn college credit and advanced standing at institutions of higher learning throughout the world.

IB programs are available at West High School and Highland High School.
