Information

Service Learning

We ask Scholars to complete 20 hours of service over grades 9 and 10 (combined). Some suggestions for service, especially during our COVID restrictions, may be discussed in class and on the newsletters and emails sent by Ms. Downing. Students are welcome to explore other opportunities, too.

Further information about Service Learning and links for submitting records may be found through our MYP Service as Action site. Be sure to check the tabs at the top right of that page to find all the resources.

Making the IB Diploma vs. Certificate Decision

While there are few choices of classes during 9th and 10th grades, Scholars have much to think about when planning for 11th and 12th. The primary decision is whether they will pursue the full IB Diploma (6 IB classes plus the Core) or go the Certificate route by doing anything less than full DP. To assist in this decision, sophomores watched a video while in English class and are asked to complete a form indicating their choices. Links for both of those are in their Google classrooms.

We held an evening presentation for parents and guardians on March 2. The presentation slides may be accessed by clicking on the image above or viewed as a PDF. Next there will be individual meetings between students and their counselors, and following that will be an opportunity for parents and guardians to request meetings with the counselors to follow up on scheduling choices.
