    We are excited you are inquiring about IB!


    Our students are always encouraged to be involved and be aware of global issues. Our teachers guide the students to be inquirers and reflective through different lessons and activities. An IB student will be highly successful in a world that requires them to be:   


    • Open-minded

    • Principled

    • Inquirers

    • Reflective

    • Caring

    • Thinkers

    • Communicators

    • Balanced

    • Knowledgeable

    • Risk-takers


    As an IB campus, we focus on our students achieving these different traits through our unit plans and projects. We have also dedicated an everyday 20 minutes lesson, Advisory, right before 7th period. Advisory time focuses on building student’s educational and study skills as well as global awareness on different issues.
