IB Diploma Program

The IB Diploma Programme at R.E. Mountain Secondary School is a challenging course of study that is an excellent preparation for Post-Secondary Education.

The IB Programme can result in early admission, and advanced placement with credit for many courses covered at the Higher Level in the course of the two years of study.

Many Students and Parents have questions about the IB Diploma Programme and the Grade 9 and 10 Pre-IB Honours Track.

The International Baccalaureate Organization has prepared a Learner Profile Flyer that explains some of the rationale behind the program and some of the expectations of students in the program and what students can expect from the program. You can access the IB Diploma page here for information from IB.
