We are very pleased to announce that due to the hard work of our students, staff and families at Roosevelt High School, on March 12, 2010, we were granted the status of International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) of Geneva, Switzerland.
The International Baccalaureate Programme authorization allows us to offer curriculum and assessments with external accountability to compliment the rigorous coursework and global perspective we have always strived for at RHS. The IB exams are accepted for college credit worldwide and give students a clear goal to work towards and “show what they know” through a variety of assessment styles.
IB isn’t just about advanced coursework and potential college credit. The IBO has a broad and inclusive mission of developing intercultural understanding throughout the world by developing the skills of a lifelong learner in students. There is an emphasis in IB courses to do more than simply deliver content. Teachers guide students to develop skills in writing, problem solving and research and while applying the content to local and global situations.
In addition to IB Diploma Programme, our International Baccalaureate Career-related Certificate (IBCC) world pilot programme offers our students the chance to engage in rigorous, externally-assessed course work while making progress towards a career certification in the health careers field.
At Roosevelt, our IBCC students become career-ready through the rigorous IB course work that provides opportunities through college-level coursework while developing career skills through mentorship opportunities in the health care community.
