High School and the IB
The International Baccalaureate framework is set up a bit differently than traditional schools. The Middle Years Program encompasses grades 6-10, while grades 11-12 are considered the Diploma Program. We are currently enrolling our first 9th grade class who would ultimately be the first class to graduate from the Magellan and the Diploma Program (DP). Magellan is currently in the process of becoming certified in the DP.
The IB Diploma Program (DP)
The IB Diploma Program is an academically challenging and balanced program that prepares students extremely well for success at the college level and beyond. It is respected by universities across the globe. IB Diploma students are characterized as highly motivated, confident, independent learners who are typically better able to cope with demanding workloads, manage their time, and meet the expectations placed on them than their peers.
