LSW IB Program

An overview of the IB opportunities offered at Lee's Summit West High School.


Lee's Summit West High School is proud of its affiliation with the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), which connects our school with more than 5,000 IB accredited schools in 160 countries. Lee's Summit West has been a successful IB participant since the school opened in 2004. This program offers a unique challenge to our academically gifted and highly motivated students.

International Baccalaureate courses allow those students who value the challenges of academically rigorous studies an opportunity to add depth, scope, and global emphasis to their high school education. Those IB diploma and certificate students who have participated in this program often find the rigor and unique nature of their studies to be not only a broadening educational high school experience, but also to be exceptional preparation for their college or university studies.
