IB Diploma Program

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. Since its founding in 1968, 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, develop 21st century leadership skills, 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.
