  • International Baccalaureate --We are exploring the future this week at PV.  The IB program is an academic pathway that may become part of our school as soon as 2020.  The IB courses are for juniors and seniors only, but the work to get ready starts well before upperclass status. Students who want the ultimate challenge can try to earn an IB diploma.  That requires that students take all six courses (Math, English, Social Science, Art, World Language and Science) complete an extended essay, do a community service task and a theory of knowledge course.  We are hoping that all students take one course in IB and that they get the experience.  We are being evaluated and doing an evaluation of the IB curriculum as well.  We will be meeting with parents in February and talk "IB" at our PTSA meeting.  Over the next few months, we will send our teachers to training and learn more.  Our goal--is to see if IB fits for our students, our community and our school.  Call it a teachable moment!
