The IB Diploma Programme
The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education, with final examinations, that prepares students aged 16 to 19 for success at university and in life beyond. Students take seven IB courses a year in their junior and senior years. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.
The program is unique because of its academic and personal rigour. IB challenges students to excel in their studies and in their personal development, while aiming to inspire a love of learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. It aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations.
Students who attend Freehold Township High School and Howell High School may elect to join the IB Diploma Programme at their home school.
Students in the Class of 2024 whose home school is Colts Neck, Freehold, Manalapan, and Marlboro may be able to participate in the Freehold Township IB Programme, if it is not at capacity. These students would attend Freehold Township High School for all four years, beginning in their freshman year. Interested eighth graders (Class of 2024) must complete an interest form online by December 18, 2019. Students and parents/ guardians are strongly encouraged to attend the IB Informational Session on November 4, 2019.
