International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program challenges students to excel in their studies and encourage both personal and academic achievement.

IB students become independent thinkers who drive their own learning and become more culturally aware and increasingly globalized through the IB curriculum.

The District has been participating in IB programming for over a decade. During the 2017-2018 school year, approximately 2700 students were enrolled in the IB Program, ranging from Kindergarten through the 12th grade.

The participating schools include:

·      Bodine High School

·      Central High School

·      Philadelphia High School for Girls

·      Northeast High School

·      George Washington High School

·       Hill-Freedman World Academy

·      Mayfair Elementary School

·      Woodrow Wilson Middle School


Offering International Baccalaureate programming to students closely aligns with the District’s Anchor Goal around college and career readiness.
