North Stanly High School International Baccalaureate

Stanly County Schools and North Stanly are very excited to begin offering IB courses slated for the Fall of 2020.  The International Baccalaureate is a globally recognized educational model devoted to offering a rigorous, high-quality education.  Students who participate in the IB programme excel in and out of the classroom through in-depth coursework, as well as an emphasis on giving back to the community to make the world a better place.  Of the four available IB programmes of study, North Stanly will be offering the Diploma and Career-related programmes.  View the following videos (provided by the International Baccalaureate Organization) or go the the official website, www.ibo.org, to learn more.

What's Does It Mean to Be IB?

The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
  • develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools
  • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
  • develop multilingual students.
