Changes Coming to the IB Program back button

At the Jan. 23, 2017 Board of Education meeting, the Board approved the recommendation to redesign the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program in the traditional high schools. IB has been offered at all three traditional high schools for the past 15 years, but the immense cost of providing the program at three schools and the consistently low number of students participating and earning IB diplomas caused the administration to recommend the changes. Another factor is that the low enrollment numbers also cause class size issues for non-IB teachers.
Effective with the Junior Class of 2017-2018:
- The IB Diploma Program will be offered only at Fike, and juniors from Hunt and Beddingfield can transfer to Fike if they want to earn an IB diploma. Bus transportation will be provided.
- An alternate program, the AP Capstone, will be offered at all three traditional high schools for students not interested in the IB Diploma Program.
*Juniors currently enrolled in the program will be allowed to finish their senior year at their current high school.
