School IB Diploma Program (the "WHS IBDP").

The WHS IBDP was established in 1996, graduating

its first students in 1998. Over the years, the WHS

IBDP has established itself as one of the finest open

This is a parent-led session designed for middle school parents and students who are considering the IB Diploma Program for their high school academic path. We will try to provide a framework in which to consider IB, give an overview of IB and compare it to the other high school pathways (e.g., AP, dual credit, etc.), and give a high-level overview of the components of the IB Diploma Program at Westwood. We hope to respond to your questions and dispel certain myths that have grown over time through Q&A.  

Time: TBD
