Education Highlight: Issaquah School District's International Baccalaureate Program

This week, we toured Skyline High School's International Baccalaureate Program with one of our international clients from Abu Dhabi. They had heard about the superior programs available in the district and are compelled to move to the Eastside because of them. The program places strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship, which are crucial in today's global economy. Learn more about the program below.

About the Program:

The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is a rigorous pre-university course of study that meets the needs of highly motivated students. Offered during the last two years of high school, its curriculum is designed to allow graduates to fulfill requirements of various national systems of education.

The International Baccalaureate diploma requires successful completion of six areas of academic study. All students are encouraged to follow the diploma path as far as possible. Instead of seeking the full diploma, however, some students choose only to take the tests in those areas where they feel most comfortable about their chances of passing. Colleges typically treat these the same as Advanced Placement tests for the granting of credit and/or advanced standing.
