Montgomery High School will host three orientation programs in the coming months for potential International Baccalaureate students.

The program is designed for students in grades 6 through 10, as well as their parents.

Montgomery has been an authorized IB diploma school since 1995 and is the only authorized IB high school in the North Bar area. Last year, 22 Montgomery seniors earned an IB diploma. Many other students can take individual IB classes in English, history, science, math, Spanish, French, Latin, Mandarin, film, anthropology, visual arts, music, dance and theater.

The IB program offers a pre-college, rigorous curriculum with a global perspective. Students who take IB courses are assessed and recognized by international standards. Students participate in the IB program as juniors and seniors and in the pre-IB/honors program as freshmen and sophomores.

The orientation at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 19  in the Montgomery library.

Information will also be available about student shadowing programs.

Montgomery is located at 1250 Hahman Dr.
