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.
In early spring semester every year, we begin to plan for the next school year. Students who are interested in the IB Diploma Program are encouraged to watch our recorded PowerPoint providing an overview of the program HERE. You can also find information on our IB Brochure in important links.
- Students who may be interested in the IB Diploma Program and want more information, please click HERE. This will inform your counselor of your potential interest as you build your course plan for next year. Hopefully after attending the virtual parent meeting, your questions will be answered as well.
- Students who intend to enroll in the IB Diploma Program can complete the registration forms HERE to officially enroll in the program. Complete the forms electronically and email them to Mrs. Thornburg at email@example.com. The preferable deadline is Friday, February 19th. However, registration packets will be accepted after that deadline. Mrs. Thornburg, our IB Counselor, will meet with each potential student throughout February to discuss their two-year plans. Mrs. Mendoza-Montoya will meet with our AVID students interested in the IB Program.
Students and parents are invited to attend a virtual IB information event on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, at 6 p.m. We will provide details to the program, develop a potential two-year diploma plan and answer questions about the program with a panel of students, alumni and staff. We are excited to share all the changes to our course offerings, and show students what the program is all about. Please contact Mrs. Fields at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending this event.
