Beginning Thursday, Montgomery High School will host three orientation seminars for its International Baccalaureate program.

The sessions are designed for parents and students in grades 8-10 and will include an overview of the IB Diploma Program (grades 11-12), an overview of the pre-IB program (grades 9-10), current Montgomery students speaking about the program, an opportunity to meet IB teachers and a question and answer session.

Orientations will be held in the Montgomery High library from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 11, Nov. 8 and Dec. 5.

Montgomery has been an authorized IB school since 1995. More than 350 students participated in the 2011-12 program and last year 17 seniors earned the IB diploma, according to school officials.
