College Prep with a Competitive Advantage: International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is one of the premier college preparatory programs in the world, and is represented in more than 2,000 schools across the globe. Students who successfully complete the IBDP gain a competitive edge over their fellow high school graduates with college admissions, college credits, and critical thinking skills. Starting junior year, students can complete the full Diploma Programme, or take individual classes for certificates (similar to AP).
 
Thomas Reason, Interim Director of Admissions for UW-Madison says, “International Baccalaureate (IB) is recognized by UW-Madison and around the state, country and world, as a curriculum of the highest standard.  Students who are involved in the IB curriculum are also recognized as individuals who have and are challenging themselves with a rigorous course of study.  The obvious importance of this is that it contributes directly to their preparedness to be successful in college and life.”
 
Green Bay West High School will be one of the first public schools in the area to offer IB during the 2011-2012 school year. Teachers are excited to be bringing this to the Green Bay area! Watch the video where teachers share their thoughts on the International Baccalaureate Programme.  
Find out more about IB at 7:00 PM on Thursday, January 20, at Green Bay West High School, 966 Shawano Avenue in the auditorium.
