International Baccalaureate (IB)
The International Baccalaureate Program is located on the Plano East Senior High School campus. The IB program is a rigorous course of study designed to meet the needs of highly motivated secondary students and to promote international understanding.
The effectiveness of the IB program is due not only to the depth of the individual courses, but also to the comprehensive nature of the program. Unlike other honors programs, the IB Program requires each student to take courses in six academic areas.
To qualify for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, students must take examinations in six subject areas, participate in the Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) program and write an extended essay during the eleventh- and twelfth-grade years.
