Ballston Spa High School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme will host an IB Information Night on January 11, 2017 from 6:00-7:30 pm in the High School Library for interested students and families. In addition to hearing about the IB options available at Ballston Spa High School, both public and private colleges will present on what role IB plays in the college admissions process. Also joining us in the discussion will be current IB students and teachers.
Prospective IB students and families are invited to Meet the IB Team on January 17, 2017 from 2:30-3:30 pm in the High School Library to discuss IB courses of interest. This forum provides information on both how and what students may explore in the seven courses of study in the IB Programme: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics, Arts, and the Inner Core. Several current IB students and parents will also be available to share their reflections of the program.
Students will also be able to learn more about the program informally at several Lunches with IB Students in the Guidance Office on January 30 – February 1, 2017. Interested students are encouraged to bring their lunch and eat with current IB students while asking what they really want to know about IB from a student’s perspective.
