What is IB?

The International Baccalaureate Program (IB) is an international
organization helping schools world-wide create a rigorous pre-college
academic program with a truly international perspective.  IB stresses
high academic standards and personal development throughout the
core program and six subject area components:

Extended Essay: students are required to write an in-depth research essay on a topic of their choice. The essay provides students with the ability to expand their knowledge of a topic of interest while preparing them for the rigors of college writing.

Theory of Knowledge (TOK): the TOK class is taken over a two year period of study and emphasizes the study of different ways of learning and the different types of knowledge.

Creativity, Action, Service (CAS): CAS allows for personal development outside of the classroom through community service, artistic endeavors, and athletic participation.

Subject Areas: students take six rigorous courses (one from each subject group) that emphasize critical thinking skills, effective communication methods, and a collaborative work environment while also uniquely stressing an international approach to the study of specific content areas.

Students do not have to complete the entire IB program. Instead, they may take both AP and IB courses to build their own individual program that best fits their own academic interests and needs.

Students who complete the full IB Diploma Program will still be able to participate in other activities. Bay Port’s schedule allows for students to complete the full Diploma Program while also taking other courses such as band, choir, and art. Additionally, students will have time built into their schedules to work on IB requirements so that they can continue to participate in extracurricular activities.
