The IB Program


IB stands for International Baccalaureate. The IB program was founded in 1968. This program is offered in fewer than 100 US high schools. IB can assist you in finding a college to attend, and  can even get you some college credits before you finish high school! To join the IB program, you must be able to take a challenge. This program is extremely difficult. To join, go to the Chesapeake Public Schools Website, and the application will be there. You complete that then go to your school guidance to get Part B of the application, which are the teacher recommendations. You then pick a date to go to Oscar Smith High School to write an essay and answer two short answer questions. The first date is January 5th, 2019 from 1pm to 3pm. The next date is January 12th, 2019 from 1pm to 3pm as well.  If you are thinking about joining, I advise that you do. I personally think that this program is extremely helpful. It can open many doors for you. If you are applying, I wish you the best of luck.
