    Norterra Canyon is excited to be entering a partnership with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme at Barry Goldwater High School. In 2017, we will begin the exciting three-year candidacy journey to become an IB World School through the IB Middle Years Programme (IBMYP).

    IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

     
    Norterra Canyon School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

    Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

    Mission Statement from the IB

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