International Baccalaureate Information
The IB Class of 2018 earned fifty IB diplomas, giving us an 85% diploma pass rate.
Great work 2018s!
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an internationally recognized, highly acclaimed, college preparatory program. It teaches students to be knowledgeable, well-rounded, caring, critical thinkers, balanced, and reflective. Whether a student decides to stay In-State or attend an Out of State College, the IB program will nurture the skills necessary to be successful at a four-year college.
If you are a hard-working, self motivated 8th or 9th-grade student interested in a well rounded, rigorous college preparation education, the IB program may be a good match for you. Students can expect to work hard and have full challenging academic schedules throughout high school, and most students are highly involved in outside extra-curricular activities and still have plenty of time for an active, meaningful social life. Most IB students say the best thing about the IB program was the friends they made in the program.
Colleges value Skyline IB students because they demonstrate qualities of critical thinking, problem solving and reflection and are very prepared to handle the course rigor at top universities around the country and world. Skyline IB students are admitted to a variety of In-State and Out of State schools such as Stanford, Johns Hopkins, Brown, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Puget Sound, BYU, University of Utah, University California Berkeley, etc. Furthermore, nearly all students who have applied to the University of Utah have received substantial merit-based scholarships. The University of Utah award students who have earned an IB Diploma 30 university credits in addition to qualifying AP credits which the student may have earned throughout high school.
