International Baccalaureate (IB) Program – of the three types of “advanced” classes (the other two being honors and Advanced Placement classes), the IB program is of the highest level of difficulty, partly because it is a systematic program of study — with all classes taught at the highest level. Students who stay in the program earn an IB diploma. A truly international program of excellence, IB students learn how to ask challenging questions, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and gain the ability to communicate and understand people for other countries and cultures.
