The International Baccalaureate is an internationally-recognized pre-university course of study that prepares students for competitive college admissions and for the rigors of college-level work.
The International Baccalaureate Organization was founded in the 1960s, resulting from an effort to establish a common curriculum and university entry credential for geographically mobile students. It is a chartered foundation under Swiss civil code with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Cleveland High School was authorized as an IB World School in 2000. Since then, we have worked to embrace the mission of the IB to "develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect" by encouraging all CHS students to engage in challenging courses across the curriculum. In addition to participating in globally-minded academic course offerings, students have the opportunity to register for formal assessment and earn a full IB Diploma or an IB Certificate in one or more Diploma Programme courses.
