IB IMMERSION EXPERIENCE
FOR PROSPECTIVE 8TH GRADE STUDENTS
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2017

St. Edward High School is very proud of its International Baccalaureate Programme and the authentic and engaging academic opportunities it provides students who are inquirers, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, balanced, reflective and willing to take risks.
What truly sets IB apart is the style of teaching and learning that brings classrooms to life.
You’re invited to experience this dynamic teaching and learning for yourself during our IB Immersion Experience for 8th grade students and their parents on Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at St. Edward High School.
During the IB Immersion Experience, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in IB coursework designed especially for you in three unique IB courses – Theory of Knowledge, Design Technology and International Studies, as well as meet our current IB Diploma Candidates and learn more about the many unique aspects of IB education. Not only will participants experience the IB coursework alongside fellow prospective students, but they will see firsthand the passion our faculty brings to the classroom and the advantages that IB offers.
