• Arthur Kramer Elementary School is a proud member of the Hillcrest High School IB Continuum as an IB Primary Years Programme!

    Hillcrest High IB Diploma Programme

    The Hillcrest High School IB Diploma Programme gives students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and up to 60 college credit hours or an Associate's Degree (tuition-free!) in four years. In partnership with Richland College, Hillcrest Collegiate Academy offers courses in which students explore engineering in a hands-on learning environment. The curriculum features a project-based learning (PBL) model that engages students to find solutions to real-world challenges. As they collaborate, design, and create solutions, students acquire the communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills so valued in the 21st century workplace.

    Students can choose from the following pathways for a head start on some of the fastest growing careers of the future:

    • Pre-Electrical Engineering
    • Electrical Engineering
    • Technology

    We are also a feeder school with Benjamin Franklin International Exploratory Academy. You can visit their site here or contact their IB Middle Years Programme Coordinator, Dan Roberts (daroberts@dallasisd.org), for more information!
