    The IB Diploma Programme

    Founded in 1997, Wooster's International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is Washoe County School District's oldest and most established Signature Academy High School. Wooster High School is the only IB World School in northern Nevada, and we are proud to be a family of educators and students who are ethnically, culturally, racially and linguistically diverse. We strive every day to realize the IB misson to develop active, compassionate and lifelong learners, and to embody the IB Learner Profile.

    After the preparation of Honors and AP classes during the freshman and sophomore years of the Middle Years Program (MYP), the Diploma Programme begins in the student's junior year. Diploma Programme students are enrolled in a minimum of 6 college-level IB classes (one from each subject group) over their junior and senior years. They are also enrolled in Theory of Knowledge, complete CAS, and produce an Extended Essay.

    The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is recognized as a world-class college preparatory program where students are challenged to become independent inquirers through a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes the global nature of learning. The IBDP is for any student who has a love of learning and exploration, who likes to be challenged, and who is willing to put in the work to be successful. In addition to a varied curriculum, IB students learn time management, work ethic, writing skills, and perhaps most importantly, critical thinking.
