For the 2021-2022 school year we have nearly 400 students working toward the IB Diploma, with another 100 students preparing for dual credit in dozens of Interlake IB courses. We’re proud of our students and understand the discipline it takes to succeed in this rigorous college preparatory coursework. Our teachers and support staff are very familiar with the latest changes to the IB curriculum and all our IB teachers are highly qualified in their teaching areas.

We’ve structured these pages so that you should be able to find what you need to help your student navigate the four year pathway to IB Diploma. If you need further information, please send along an email or give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!
