Welcome to all students interested in the IB
Introduction to the Diploma ProgramThe IB Diploma Program is designed to be a consistent international curriculum such that all Universities can be guaranteed the same results from each IB student. The IB Program is a rigorous program designed to prepare students for any post-high school education - especially University level work. Students are taught and then asked to perform at a University level of work, commitment, and dedication. Time management is just as important as the student's desire to learn and become a life long learner.
