What is the IB Diploma Program (DP)
The Diploma Program (DP) curriculum is made up of six IB subject groups: English, world language, social studies, science, mathematics, and an IB elective. Students must take three or four of these subjects at what IB refers to as the "higher level (HL)" and two or three at what is called the "standard level (SL)". All courses include two assessment categories- internal assessment and external assessment. Diploma Candidates also must participate in core components: Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Extended Essay (EE) of approximately 4,000 words, and complete approximately 150 hours in Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). If a student successfully completes the requirements designed by International Baccalaureate Program they will earn the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Not every student is expected to complete the full diploma option, thus there are course candidates. Course candidates may take up to 3 classes each year in the 11th and 12 grade. Students can find that they are not prepared for the rigors of an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program; therefore, the Fontana Unified School District in conjunction with Jurupa Hills High School offers several honors and other courses in 9th and 10th grade to properly prepare students for success.
