IB Diploma Programme

Hinkley StudentThe International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a comprehensive, two-year curriculum designed for juniors and seniors seeking a challenging educational experience with a strong emphasis on international understanding and responsible citizenship.

As they near the end of the Programme, IB Diploma students undergo a final examination process that mimics college exams and prepares them for success at the university and life beyond.

IB Diploma Requirements

To receive an IB diploma, students must take and pass world standard exams in six subject areas, fulfill a community service requirement, submit an extended essay and follow an interdisciplinary course in Theory of Knowledge.

College Preparation

Upon successful completion of the Programme, students receive a diploma that is recognized by leading universities around the world. Many schools, including the University of Colorado and other major universities in Colorado, even grant college credit for students who score well on their IB exams and earn their IB Diplomas.

MostHinkley Student IB Diploma students consider it ample preparation for college.

“There is a big difference between the students who were in IB and those who were not. The IB kids are ready for what college expects.” -- Former Hinkley IB student Aakah S.
