International Baccalaureate (IB) Program

New Westminster Schools offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. Starting in Grade 9 and 10 with the New Westminster Secondary School Pre-IB program, and the Diploma or certificate programs in Grades 11 and 12, this program leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.  The International Baccalaureate program also prepares highly motivated students for the rigors of post-secondary education. It encourages students to ask questions and to interact with the world around them in a meaningful way. This program not only teaches students but teaches them how to learn.
