Gresham High School has been an authorized International Baccalaureate school since 1999. IB is a rigorous college-prep program which prepares students for the next level in their education, as well as challenging them in their high school experience. Students can participate in the IB program in three ways: take an IB course to support academic interests; become an IB course candidate by testing in the IB course; or pursue an IB Diploma. All students are encouraged to enrich their high school experience by taking IB classes.
The 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 programmes 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
