Highland extending deadline for IB Programme

IB programme provides an opportunity for students who wish to excel academically

Highland Secondary School is extending the deadline for its International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme.

“We have had a number of applicants for September of 2015,” reports Andrew Black, the IB programme co-ordinator. “But we do need more in order to have the programme run next year. We are encouraging students and parents to take a closer look at IB and the many advantages it offers the university-bound student.”

Highland’s two-year IB programme – now moving into its fourth year – provides an opportunity for students who wish to excel academically and who wish to attend college or university after high school.

For more information, check out the IB Programme tab on Highland’s website or contact Black via email at Andrew.Black@sd71.bc.ca.
