International Baccalaureate (IB) at Barry Goldwater High School


    The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  To this end, the IB works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.  These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.


    The BGHS IB Program has flexibility!  Students participating in the BGHS IB Diploma Program can be either Full Diploma Candidates and complete all of the requirements or students can be Certificate Candidates and choose to just complete requirements in one or more specific content areas. Through advisement, students complete a 4-year Plan to determine which option is the right fit and have flexibility to make changes along the way.
