Northshore presents information on International Baccalaureate Program

IB Program The Northshore School District will host an informational meeting Dec. 2, 7:30-8:30 p.m., in Ricketts Auditorium, on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program. In the fall of 1997, Inglemoor High School will become one of 600 schools in 73 countries to offer an International Baccalaureate (IB) Program.
   The IB program is a rigorous, pre-university course of study that meets the needs of highly motivated secondary school students. It is applauded by colleges for its emphasis on analytical and critical thinking and its focus on written communication, school officials said.
   The meeting Dec. 2 will focus on three topics: pre-IB requirements and concerns; attendance issues for students outside the Inglemoor High School service area; and the diploma requirements and assessment. This meeting will be most relevant for students or parents of students who plan to take IB courses at Inglemoor High School in the next two years.
