High School (grades 9-12)
These are most likely the most rigorous, yet the most memorable years of a student’s life. Like any American high school, these years are full of proms, big games, concerts, plays, clubs and trips to fill yearbooks. These events are made even more special as they are shared with friends from all around the globe.
High school is when students take responsibility and show their independence. Beginning in 9th grade students are engaged in choosing classes based on their plans for their future, reaching a high point when students enter the rigorous and rewarding IB program in 11th and 12th grades. Whether it be service learning, science fair, clubs, sports, music, drama, class or student government or the IB program, the teacher takes on the role of coach allowing greater student independence. This high school preparation prepares students to be successful university students anywhere in the world.
