INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE INFORMATION NIGHT: Ballston Spa High School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme will host an IB Information Night on January 7, 2020 from 6:00-7:00 pm in the High School Library for interested students and families. In addition to hearing about the IB options available at Ballston Spa High School, both public and private colleges will present on what role IB plays in the college admissions process. Also joining us in the discussion will be current IB students and teachers. Prospective IB students and families are invited to Meet the IB Team on January 14, 2020 from 2:30-3:30 pm in the High School Library to discuss IB courses of interest. This forum provides information on both how and what students may explore in the seven courses of study in the IB Programme: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics, Arts, and the Inner Core. Several current IB students will also be available to share their reflections of the program. All those interested in pursuing the full IB Diploma Programme can obtain an application in the guidance office or via the International Baccalaureate Programme tab on the High School webpage. The application is due January 17, 2020 to Mrs. Kavanaugh in the guidance office.
