IB High School
Each IB high school in AACPS is home to two International Baccalaureate programs: The IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) and the IB Diploma Progamme (IB DP).
In the IB Middle Years Programme, students explore connections between their experiences and the world around them. IB teachers collaborate to develop experiences that merge a framework of academic challenges and life skills with the AACPS Instructional Curriculum. This helps students understand the relationship between all subject areas and to apply the same core set of skills—including, communication, reflection, and thoughtfulness—in many different ways.
In the IB Diploma Programme (DP), over two years, students will take college-level courses grouped around six major themes: studies in language and literature, language acquisition, individuals and societies, science, mathematics, and the arts. Students gain a network of support and encouragement as they step outside of their comfort zone and engage directly with the world outside of the classroom. IB DP students graduate ready to enter college or take whatever next step they see to becoming agents of global change.
The Office of Advanced Studies and Programs offers the International Baccalaurete Middle Years Programme and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Annapolis, Meade, and Old Mill High Schools.
