ACADEMIC PATHWAYS 2015-2016 FIND YOUR PATH AT LAMAR HIGH SCHOOL AN INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE WORLD SCHOOL FIND YOUR PATH AT LAMAR HIGH SCHOOL With so many options at Lamar to choose from, it takes some planning to get to where you want to be when you graduate. This presentation can help you, through grades 9 12, to pick the classes you need to meet your academic goals and participate in the activities you enjoy. With the sample plans in this presentation, you can follow the one that fits you exactly, or borrow the concept from one and adjust it to suit your interests, no matter what you want to accomplish. Lamar offers strong college preparation in all classes with the power and support of the International Baccalaureate behind everything we do. Whether you are a magnet student, athlete, or artist, you can build your program at Lamar with the sample plans in this The WHAT IS IB? International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. The IB Middle Years Program, provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and to become critical and reflective thinkers. THE CURRICULUM: The IB Middle Years program consists of eight subject groups integrated through five Areas of Interaction (Multidisciplinary, Business/Industry, STEM, Arts & Humanities, and Public Service) that provide a framework for learning within and across the subjects. Students are required to study: Mathematics, English, Science, Humanities,

Second Language, Arts, Physical Education, and Technology. In the sophomore year, students engage in a personal project, which allows them to demonstrate the understandings and skills they have developed throughout the program. In junior and senior years, anyone can pursue the IB diploma; many of the plans identify diploma paths. http://www.ibo.org/mission/; http://www.ibo.org/myp/ THE IB DIPLOMA PROGRAM The IB Diploma Program is designed as an academically challenging and balanced program of education with assessments that prepare students for success at university and life beyond. The program is taught in 11th and 12th grade and has gained recognition and respect from the world's leading universities. THE CURRICULUM IB Diploma Program students at Lamar study: 3 courses at higher level (HL) and 3 courses at standard level (SL). 3 core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding. The extended essay is a requirement for students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to their studies. Theory of knowledge is a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing and different kinds of knowledge. Creativity, Action, Service requires that students actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE IB DIPLOMA? Public universities in Texas, Colorado, California and Florida give a minimum of 24 hours of credit to IB diploma recipients attending state colleges. Lamar graduates have received as many as 45 hours of credit from their scores on the IB diploma. Life in the 21st century, in an interconnected, globalized world, requires criticalthinking skills and a sense of international-mindedness - something that International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program students come to know and understand. http://www.ibo.org/diploma/ ASSESSMENT Students take written examinations at the end of the program, which are marked by external IB examiners. Students also complete assessment tasks in the school, which are either initially marked by teachers and then moderated by external moderators or sent directly to external examiners. The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole program and to satisfactory participation in the creativity, action, service (CAS) requirement.
