Rockford High School is officially an IB School !!!

Rockford High School is proud to announce that we have become officially authorized as an IB World School.  During the past school year, we went through the process of preparing for our verification visit for the Diploma Program (DP) and Career Related Program (CP).  As a result, we may now offer courses under these programs which prepare students for success in the workforce and the rigor of higher education, challenge students to demonstrate new knowledge through critical thinking and collaboration and help create international-minded citizens who think locally and act globally. Recognized in institutions of higher education across the world, IB courses offer the potential for students to earn college credit across several subject areas.

 
We are so proud of our teachers, staff, and students who have worked so hard this year to assist us with moving this program forward. One of the most attractive features of the IB program is how flexible it is for each learner. All students will encounter IB principles and approaches to teaching and learning; our students have a say in which path they take in order to fulfill their college or career goals. In this way, we are able to offer every student at Rockford High School the experience in grades 9-12 they deserve.
