ACADEMICS: IB Diploma Program

The IB Diploma Program is designed as an academically challenging and balanced program of education with final examinations that prepare students for success. IB Diploma seniors must write a 4,000-word essay on a topic of their choice ranging from history to philosophy. 

Mrs. Montenegro’s Theory of Knowledge class has been working diligently throughout the first semester to complete their essays. Many students did find it challenging to choose a topic that was broad enough to write 4,000 words. However, once the seniors began compiling a list of primary and secondary sources and meeting with their extended essay advisor, the majority of the hard work was already done. Great job seniors!

  1. Let's go IBers! Only a few more months until graduation!

  2. Is there a certain deadline for when a sophomore can decide to go IB or not?

  3. I am in the IB PROGRAM.
    I am so glad that Fairmont has this program. Although it takes a lot of work, it is a good program.
