International Baccalaureate

  • The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a two-year college-prep program that focuses on a broad curriculum and an in-depth, well-rounded course of study. The IB Diploma DOES NOT replace the NC high school diploma, but rather provides an additional level of opportunity while strengthening students' academic and social development and tenacity, which in turn enables success in a world-recognized rigorous program.

    Completion of the IB diploma requires the study of six content courses and the completion of the core requirements. Most courses are two years long, which provides students an opportunity to attain a greater depth within each course. Within each course, students develop and/or enhance their analytical and evaluative skills. 

    Benefits of the Southeast Raleigh International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme:

    • College recognition
    • Opportunity for improved time management, organization, and speaking skills
    • Enhanced critical thinking
    • Challenges assumptions and opportunities integrated into the daily class instruction
    • Continual interconnectedness between subject areas


    Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This school is authorized as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students.
