Brockton High School partners with the International Baccalaureate Organization as an authorized Diploma Programme school. The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world's leading universities.
Students learn more than a collection of facts. The Diploma Programme prepares students for university and encourages them to …
- ask challenging questions
- learn how to learn
- develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture
- develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.
Along with completing various internal and external assessments, these students sit for exams in May in order to earn either an internationally recognized course certificate or a full IB diploma.
In addition to taking academic courses that are both rigorous and relevant, the students who are enrolled in the full Diploma Programme are also required to participate in the Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) component of the IB Programme. Through this component, students are able to further develop themselves as well rounded, globally minded young men and women.
Those who are directly involved in the organization and facilitation of the IB Programme at BHS this year are listed to the right as is their contact information.
