The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) is designed for students ages 11 to 16.  This period, encompassing early puberty and mid-adolescence, is a particularly critical phase of personal and intellectual development and requires a program that helps students participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world. The curriculum contains eight subject groups together with a core made up of five areas of interaction.  For specific information, please feel free to contact the applicable school site or visit

International Baccalaureate Diploma Program

The IB Diploma Program is designed to expose students to an academically challenging and balanced program of education with final examinations that prepares students for success at the university level and beyond. IB Diploma Program students study six courses at higher level or standard level. In addition, the program has three core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding. The extended essay is a requirement for students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects they are studying. Theory of Knowledge is a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing (perception, emotion, language and reason) and different kinds of knowledge (scientific, artistic, mathematical and historical). Creativity, action, service requires that students actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom.

Students take written examinations at the end of the program, which are scored by external IB examiners. Students also complete assessment tasks in the school.

The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole program and to satisfactory participation in the creativity, action, service requirement. Student who earn the IB Diploma receive recognition from the San Bernardino City Unified School District Board of Education.
