  • International Baccalaureate Programme

    IB IB is the best education experience; as we learn how to analyze what we are learning rather than simply memorizing and regurgitating facts. It offers academic breadth and depth and cultivates an international mindset.

    Be an IB student by signing up for IB Classes. If you need help choosing an IB class according to your interests, you can e-mail Mrs. Bains. If you are interested in doing the full IB Diploma, applications are located in the main office. The applications are due to Mrs. Bains on March 11th.
