• MAY 2020 IB Exams have been cancelled.
    Due to the  cancellation of school days and the uncertainty and health concerns posed by COVID-19, the IB has announced the cancellation of the May 2020 examination session.  IB Diplomas and course certificates will be awarded based on student coursework (EAs and IAs) submitted. This information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
    This has been an unprecedented and difficult time for the IB and all of us.  Your patience and understanding is appreciated while we make our way through this process. The IB, our teachers and administrators will be working throughout this process to ensure the success of all students.  Teachers should communicate with students through email on or before Monday April 6th with final instructions.
