The International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) has begun at Lincoln High School. Lincoln High is the second high school in Nebraska to offer this unique program. Students who earn their International Baccalaureate Diploma are eligible to be granted college credit, advanced standing, and admittance to universities of distinction around the world.
IB students take six core classes their junior and senior years including English, world language, social studies, math, science, and the arts. Students are also required to take a philosophy course entitled Theory of Knowledge, complete a 4000-word research essay, and complete 150 hours of school involvement and community service. This program will prepare students to meet the challenges of college.
The International Baccalaureate assessments are very different from those of other college preparation programs. Students in their freshman and sophomore years need to take courses designed specifically for the philosophy, exams, and assessments they will face their junior and senior year in IB.
