Summary: Murray High School is in the Candidacy Phase of becoming an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, potentially offering the Diploma Programme to ACPS 11th and 12 graders beginning SY 2020-21.

The IB approach to learning is grounded in the belief that learning how to learn is fundamental to a student’s education. IB enables students to become self-regulated learners who know how to ask good questions, set effective goals, pursue their aspirations and have the determination to achieve them. These skills also help to support students’ sense of agency, encouraging them to see their learning as an active and dynamic process.

This presentation will go into more detail about the IB Diploma Programme and the application process, milestones, curricula, and implementation timeline for Murray High School.
