    In 2005, Annapolis High School was fully authorized by the International Baccalaureate (IB) to offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP). There are currently over 4000 schools in 181 countries authorized to teach the Diploma Programme. Students who have earned the IB Diploma attend universities throughout the world and receive many benefits from American universities in the form of higher admission rates, up to a year or more of college credit for IB coursework, and an exceptional level of preparation for college level research and writing.

    Students receive marks in DP subjects based on a combination of written examinations that are graded by international examiners and internal assessments which utilize a range of authentic assessments (e.g. papers, lab reports, art portfolios, musical compositions, & oral exams), scored by their IB trained AHS teachers and are then externally moderated by the IB in order to maintain consistency and high standards at each IB school.  

    To receive the IB Diploma, students must successfully take one course from each of six subject groups. Of these six subjects, three courses will be taken at Standard Level and three courses at Higher Level. Students have a variety of options available to them to tailor their strengths and interests within this model while still ensuring that students are taking high level course work in all subjects.

    Additionally, students will complete a course in Theory of Knowledge, participate in over 150 hours of Creativity, Action, and Service activities, and write an extended essay of up to 4,000 words (giving students an opportunity to conduct an in-depth research of a topic of special interest) as part of the Diploma Program.
