International Baccalaureate (IB)

Our goal is that all Skyline students will be prepared for and eager to accept the academic, occupational, personal, and practical challenges of life in a dynamic global environment.
 
What is IB?
•A highly respected, skill-based university preparatory education for students in grades 11 and 12.
•A program of choice reflecting student interest and ability.
•A program promoting international awareness and community involvement.
•A program that provides high quality, internationally recognized education.
•A program that encourages students to flourish emotionally, ethically, intellectually, and physically.
•A program that encourages a positive attitude toward learning and possesses a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership, and student achievement

 

There are three pathways a student can follow within IB at Skyline:

1) An individual Course student takes a class, completes the syllabus work, takes an exam, and earns an IB Certificate.

2) A Career student takes a 2-year sequence of career-related classes, 2-4 IB classes, and completes additional requirements to earn the IB Career-Related Certificate.

3) A Diploma student takes classes in the five core areas as well as one IB elective and completes additional "Core" requirements to earn the IB Diploma.

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
