Information for 11th and 12th Grade Applicants
Students applying to 11th and 12th grade must enroll before September 30th due to the rigorous demands of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) and IB regulations governing the suggested number of hours of study in all subjects. Students may enter 12th grade only if they are transferring from another IB Diploma Program school with a similar course offering.
All IB DP courses are taught in English with exception of Spanish language courses. Therefore, the applicant should demonstrate an advanced level of both written and oral fluency in order to ensure academic success.
Admission to the IB DP will be subject to the following:
- results of the admissions examinations
- interviews with the Secondary School Principal and IB DP Coordinator
- record of prior academic achievement
- previous school reports (including the most recent)
- the applicant’s future educational plan
Students may choose to enter one of two IB tracks.
IB Diploma Program Track
Includes at least 3 higher level (HL) courses, 3 standard level courses (SL), CAS, TOK and Extended Essay. Upon completion, students will receive an IB DP diploma, as well as a national diploma and a MET diploma.
Partial Diploma Track
Optional for students who wish to take a different combination of HL and SL courses. Creativity-Action-Service (CAS) as well as Theory of Knowledge (TOK) will still be required. Upon completion, students will receive a national diploma and a MET Diploma as well as an IB certificate for each IB DP course completed.
