​​​​WHAT IS IB?

A School of Intercultural Understanding and Global Learning

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) is an academically challenging, balanced programme of pre-university education that meets the needs of highly motivated secondary students in the eleventh and twelfth grades. The goals of the IB are to ensure "intellectual rigor and high academic standards, to teach young people to relate the experiences of the classroom to the outside world, and to assist students in becoming critical thinkers, lifelong learners, and informed participants" in their communities and in the world. The program fosters an international perspective by encouraging students to understand and to value others cultural perspectives. Jurupa Hills High School was accepted as an IB world school by the Director General of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) of Geneva, Switzerland in February 2011, thereby authorizing the school to offer the Grade 11-12 Diploma Program beginning in the fall of 2012.

International Baccalaureate Diploma Program Description 
If a student successfully completes the requirements designed by International Baccalaureate Program they will earn the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma. The rigorous requirements of the program include successful completion of six IB courses in English, a world language, social studies, science, mathematics, and an IB elective. Students must take three or four of these subjects at what IB refers to as the "higher level (HL)" and two or three at what is called the "standard level (SL)". All courses include two assessment categories- internal assessment and external assessment. Diploma Candidates also must participate in core components: Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Extended Essay (EE) of approximately 4,000 words, and complete approximately 150 hours in Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). Not every student is expected to complete the full diploma option, thus there are course candidates. Course candidates may take up to 3 classes each year in the 11th and 12 grade.  Students can find that they are not prepared for the rigors of an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program; therefore, the Fontana Unified School District in conjunction with Jurupa Hills High School offers several honors and other courses in 9th and 10th grade to properly prepare students for success.
