International Baccalaureate (IB) is an optional two-year program of rigorous learning during a student's junior and senior years.  Students study in six academic areas: Language; Second Language; Mathematics; Science; Individuals and Society; and the Arts.  Students take examinations at the end of their senior year.  Based on their scores, students may receive an IB diploma.  The IB Diploma is internationally recognized by prestigious universities for excellence in college preparation.  IB diploma graduates often begin their college careers as second year students.
