Two IB Pathways! One amazing program!
Dakota Ridge High School is proud to be an International Baccalaureate Programme School. Dakota Ridge offers two IB options for students. All DRHS juniors and seniors are invited to become a part of the IB programme at Dakota Ridge, either as diploma candidates or certificate students. Read below to learn more about the two IB options for DRHS students.
IB Diploma Pathway:
The IB diploma pathway is for students who are interested in pursuing the IB Diploma in 11th and 12th grade.
Benefits of earning an IB Diploma can include:
College or University Tuition Savings
Nationally and Internationally Recognized
Broad, Balanced Curriculum
and Much More
Students considering the IB Program for their junior year can complete a form indicating their interest in the IB program as incoming 8th, 9th, or 10th graders. Click here to access the 8th grade form; click here to access the 9th/10th grade form. For more information on joining the DRHS IB community, see the "Enrollment and Admission" tab.
IB Certificate Classes:
The second pathway option is the chance to "a la carte" classes. This means that ALL juniors and seniors are invited to take the IB classes of their choice, without the commitment of doing the full diploma program. The following classes are available to all upperclassmen students:
IB Language and Literature
IB Spanish, French, or German
IB Sports, Exercise, and Health Science
IB Math Applications and Interpretations
IB Math Analysis and Approaches
IB Visual Arts
IB World Religions
All of these classes are available to our juniors and seniors, and all offer the chance to earn college credit! Click here to learn more about earning college credit for IB classes in the state of Colorado!
