Curious about Montgomery High School’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Program? Interested students will have a chance to learn more during one of a series of fall presentations, the first of which is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 13.

During the orientations, parents and students in grades 7 to 10 can learn more about the program, meet with current participants and teachers, and get acquainted with a “pre-IB honors program” for grades 9 and 10.

Montgomery has been an authorized International Baccalaureate, or IB, school since 1995. Last year, 32 seniors earned the IB diploma, which is defined by a curriculum that prepares students for college and has a global focus.

In addition to taking English, history, math and science, students develop their own program of study from a choice of  four languages (Spanish, French, Latin or Mandarin) and a range of IB electives including film, anthropology, visual arts, music, dance and theater.

Thursday’s orientation will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the school library. Another presentation will occur on Wednesday, Jan. 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., also in the school library.
