Highland’s International Baccalaureate Program info session upcoming

Public meeting for all insterested students and parents on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m.

  • Jan. 7, 2015 12:00 p.m.

Are you an academically focused student with a strong desire to succeed?

Are you willing to work hard now to ensure future success?

Do you want to share your courses with like-minded classmates?

Are you planning to attend college or university?

If you can answer yes to all of these questions, then Highland Secondary School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Program is for you.

As an IB student, you will receive an internationally recognized and academically rigorous program designed to prepare you for the challenges of post-secondary education.

You will work with classmates equally determined to succeed and you will be taught by experienced teachers with specialized IB training.

You will learn how to prepare university level research papers and design and carry out scientific experiments of your own devising.

You will contribute to your community, develop your skills in a second language and investigate other cultures and ways of thinking.

Highland’s IB Program is now about to enter its fourth year. Out first graduates are now in universities across Canada and are reporting success in their university studies.  Read their accounts yourself at www.facebook.com/HighlandIB. (You don’t have to be a Facebook user to access this page.)

The IB Diploma Program takes place during the Grade 11 and 12 years. Students apply for admission into the IB program in their Grade 10 year.

Younger students may wish to investigate Highland’s honours courses at the Grade 10 level in order to prepare for their entry to IB, but such courses are not mandatory.

Highland will be holding a public meeting for all students and parents interested in learning more about the IB program on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. in Highland’s multi-purpose room. For more information about the IB program, check out www.highlandsecondary.ca or contact Andrew Black, Highland’s IB co-ordinator, at andrew.black@sd71.bc.ca.
