Welcome to the Dublin High School webpage for the
International Bacculaurate Diploma Programme!
So What is IB?
The IB Diploma Program (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced program of education that prepares students, in grades 11 & 12, for success at university and life beyond. The program has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading colleges and universities as the premier path of preparatory study. The IB course of study has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being of students. The program is process-centered, meaning that great emphasis is placed on not only challenging students to excel intellectually within their content studies, but also in their personal growth. IB aims to inspire responsibility in students along with a quest for life-long learning that is marked with enthusiasm and empathy. In addition to the DHS diploma, enrolled IB students may choose to pursue the IB Diploma, or available subject-specific certificates. Full pursuit of the IB Diploma means students must have completed various prerequisites in 9th or 10th grade and they must meet the specified graduation requirements from the State of Georgia.
For declared IB Diploma candidates, the IB requirements involve full participation in 6 areas of study, submission of a TOK essay and presentation, an Extended Essay focused on independent student-conducted research, as well as, completion of the Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) volunteer/service requirements. IB is a significant amount of work, but there are many advantages for enrolling in the program. Students who earn the diploma are eagerly accepted into some of the world’s most prestigious universities. Students who receive high marks on the culminating IB Exams, and/or the Diploma, are commonly eligible for college/university credit. Additionally, former IB students report that their involvement in the program has given them the necessary tools and skills to excel at the university level, particularly with their ability to be prepared, their self-confidence, their research skills, their time-management, and to be actively engaged in their own learning.
