An International Baccalaureate education is offered through K-12 in our district. Students may begin their IB Educational Career at Thacker Avenue For International Studies with the Primary Years Program. Then continue with the Middle Years Program at Parkway Middle School. They will have the opportunity to apply for the Diploma Program at either Gateway High School or Celebration High School during their eighth grade year. Students who graduate with an IB Diploma are more likely to be accepted in a top tier college. The IB continuum begins with teaching the whole child and developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
