International Baccalaureate (IB) Program
International Baccalaureate is an academically challenging course of study that is available to interested Kennewick High School students who are internally motivated. Students may choose to study only certain subjects as IB, or they may take a full load of IB courses to pursue the IB Diploma. Freshman and sophomores take a partial load of pre-IB courses. Junior and seniors take IB courses and can take tests both years.
The IB diploma is advantageous when applying to universities that have very selective admissions policies. It may also be accepted as a year of college or university work, or students may be granted advanced placement for exams with higher scores. Successful completion of part of the program may earn advanced university placement in tested areas. IB Coordinator Ashley Williams can be reached at (509) 222-6092 or Ashley.Williams@ksd.org.
