    Spring 2023 8th Grade Visit
    On May 4th, 8th graders are invited to visit our campus during the school day.  They will learn about clubs, sports, classes, and have the opportunity to tour our campus.  Jackson and Gray Middle Schools will arrive with their teachers. If your student attends a private school or a PPS school outside of Jackson or Robert Gray MS, please complete this Sign-Up Form so we can communicate the details as they are available.    

    Here are Event Details  

    There are also many other ways to see what is happening at IBWHS.

    The Guardian Showcase
    We hosted "Discover Ida B. Wells High School" on November 30th. This was an opportunity for our current parents and students, community members and incoming freshmen families to learn about the many pathways, elective and academic programs, clubs and athletics that are offered at Ida B. Wells High School.  If you missed the event, here are a few items you can review:

    Forecasting for Classes for 2023/2024

    • For families new to PPS (private school or new to the neighborhood), we will need you to enroll with IBWHS.  Enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year can begin any time.  We just need proof that you live in the neighborhood, immunizations, IEP and school records from your previous school.  Please start your process by contacting our counseling secretary, Sharon Dailey, by email at sdailey@pps.net.  After you enroll, you will be contacted by the school with further directions on how to complete the forecasting process.
