IB Diploma Program

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a comprehensive, rigorous program of advanced studies that demands the best from motivated students. IB students study a broad spectrum of subjects and engage in research (Extended Essay) and experiential learning through school, community, and international activities. In the forty years since its founding, the IB Diploma has become a symbol of academic integrity and intellectual promise, recognized by leading universities in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Marietta High School’s IB Diploma Programme, authorized since 1995, aims to provide a balanced education, facilitate geographic mobility, and promote international understanding through a shared academic experience. All our IB Diploma subjects are taught over a two-year period across a wide range of disciplines leading to international examinations for students in grades 11 & 12. Our IB exam results compare favorably to those of other IB World Schools, and our students are widely accepted at competitive universities across America and abroad.

  • MHS to offer IB Career-related Certificate beginning Fall 2013

    On April 19, 2013, the International Baccalaureate Organization officially authorized Marietta High School to offer the IB Career-related Certificate. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education—that we believe is important for our students. Like the IB Diploma, the IBCC is an 11th/12th grade program of study, a quality career education program with IB support. The IBCC pairs the school's industry-certified career pathways with two or more IB DP courses as well as an IB Core specific to the IBCC. The first cohort of 11th grade IBCC candidates begin the program fall 2013.

    For further information about the IBCC www.ibo.org.
