General Information

What is the International Baccalaureate Organization?
The IBO is a non-profit international educational organization established in 1968. The IBO offers three programmes of international education that span the primary, middle and secondary school years. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3-12, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 11-16, and the Diploma Programme (DP) for students aged 16-18. While these programmes form a continuous sequence, each may be offered independently. In all three programmes, the IBO offers schools curriculum materials, assessment procedures, teacher training workshops, school authorization, programme evaluation, and comprehensive support services in English, French and Spanish.   Great Oak High School offers the Diploma Programme only.  This means that involved students commit to attempting the entire programme during their junior and senior years.


How many schools offer IB programmes?
Currently, 1,293 schools are authorized to offer IB programmes (the Diploma Programme, the Middle Years Programme, the Primary Years Programme). The schools offer a total of 1,489 IB programmes (DP, MYP, PYP).  In the United States there are 521 Diploma Programmes, and over 85 of these are in the state of California.


What types of schools offer IB programmes?
IB programmes are offered by state schools, public schools, private schools and international schools.


Can any student enroll in an IB programme?
Only students enrolled in an IBO authorized school may participate in an IB programme. Any student who is at an IBO-authorized school may enroll in the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme. The Diploma Programme (DP) is designed more for highly motivated students who hope to attend university; enrollment in the programme is at the discretion of the school.  At Great Oak High School we believe that all students willing to accept the challenge should be allowed to participate in the programme.  Students from outside of the district who wish to transfer in for the programme are subject to some regulations.  Please contact the coordinator for more informaiton.
