  • IB Program Enrollment Process

    The IB Diploma Program is a highly respected, rigorous, college-prep program offered during 11th and 12th grades only at MVHS in our district.  It provides students with an opportunity to expand their critical thinking, creative and communication skills, while potentially earning college credit, receiving a GPA boost, and gaining positive recognition in the college admissions process.  Universities look favorably on the IB Diploma Program because they understand the rigor and preparation for college the IB Diploma Program provides, which leads to greater student success in college.


    Students interested in enrolling in the full IB Diploma Program for their junior and senior years should complete the steps below.

    1. Submit a completed and signed IB Registration packet to Mrs. Thornbug (IB Diploma Counselor - jthornburg@murrieta.k12.ca.us) by February of their sophomore year. This packet includes: an IB contract, an IB Academic Honesty Statement, and a two-year plan.
    2. Meet with Mrs. Thornburg or Mrs. Fields to confirm your 2-year IB Program plans and answer questions in February.




    Students and parents are invited to attend an IB information event on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at 6 p.m. in the MVHS Library.  We will provide details of the program, develop a potential two-year diploma plan and answer questions about the program with a panel of students and staff. We are excited to share all the changes to our course offerings, and show students what the program is all about. We hope to see you there!
