Program Overview

  • What Is International Baccalaureate?
    The IB Programme is a rigorous college preparatory program that is housed in Lucille Brown Middle and Thomas Jefferson High schools. Students in grades 6-10 are in the IB Middle Years Programme, and students in grades 11-12 are in the IB Diploma Programme.

    The IB Mission
    The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the IBO works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
