OHS IB Program

What is IB?
The International Baccalaureate Program is an innovative and accelerated method of academic study offered solely through the IB World Schools. In this program, students take advanced courses and can earn an internationally accredited diploma if the accrue at least 24 points by passing the IB exams within a two-year period (junior and senior year). 
The aim of the program is to develop internationally-minded people who become responsible members of local, national, and global communities.
As a member of the International Baccalaureate program, the ultimate goal is to earn the IB diploma. By earning this diploma, students will pave a clear path to their collegiate career. 
Typically it will take a student two school-years to meet the requirements to earn the IB diploma (junior and senior year). 
We are proud to announce that we average a 75% success rate of our seniors who attempt to earn this diploma!
