4 What is the IB Programme?
“The IB is not just about belonging to a school; it is about belonging to a world network of like-minded people who have a common experience and the capacity to change the world for the better.” -Ian Hill, Deputy Director General of the International Baccalaureate Organization, Supertest, 2005 History Magnet Course Work

5 IB Learner Profile IB Programmes aim to develop internationally minded people who are striving to become: Inquirers Knowledgeable Thinkers Communicators Risk-takers Principled Caring Open-minded Well-balanced Reflective The IBO aims to develop well-rounded students. Every class and every lesson aim to develop all of these skills in each one of our students. One characteristic that we like to point out is well-balanced. There is a common misconception that in order for an IB student to be successful in the program they must have “no life”. In fact, most of our students are involved in a number of activities including sports and clubs at school as well as activities in their community. The CAS requirement further instills the concept of a well-balanced student by having the student expand their knowledge outside of the classroom through creative, active and service activities.

6 Academics 4 years of each: Other courses: English Inquiry Skills
Foreign Language French or Spanish Mathematics Social Studies Science Biology, Chemistry, & Physics Other courses: Inquiry Skills Theory of Knowledge IB Elective Second Science Psychology Economics Art Traditional Electives Foreign Language – All students must begin 9th grade with Spanish I – Pre-IB regardless of whether they have completed a foreign language in middle school. Inquiry Skills is an “IB Survival Course” of sorts. This is a course taken by all 9th graders where they develop skills associated with studying, organization, research etc. Despite being in IB classes the majority of the day, students also have the option of taking electives in our traditional program.
