IB Diploma Programme Small Group Info Sessions
Sophomore parents and students! Are you considering joining the MHS IB Diploma Programme? Join a Small Group Info Session to learn about the value and demands of the Diploma Programme and about the courses and scheduling during this two year programme.
The Diploma Programme is a demanding and rewarding academic programme that will prepare students for college and future challenges. It is designed for motivated students who enjoy the learning process and want to challenge themselves and grow personally, academically and intellectually.
One recent graduate described his experience in the Diploma Programme as “the highlight of my high school experience!” Another graduate described it as “a community, an experience, and nothing short of life-changing.”
Go to http://bit.ly/DPSmallGroupMeetings to join a mandatory Small Group Interest Meeting. The student and at least one parent are required to attend. Contact Mr. Baron, Millbrook’s DP coordinator, if you have questions.
