What is IB?
The IB Program is a rigorous, two-year comprehensive program for highly motivated, high achieving students in grades11 and 12, at Washington-Lee High School. The program seeks to prepare students for post-secondary study through courses and instructional techniques that emphasize:
- Critical thinking

- An interdisciplinary approach with a strong international focus
When do students apply?
Students apply for the Pre-I.B. program in grade 8. Candidates should have completed Algebra and— either French 2 ,Spanish 2 , Chinese 2, or Latin 2 by the end of grade 8.
Application Process for the 2017-2018 School Year

Where can I get more information?
If your student is interested in the I.B. program, we strongly recommend you and your child attend the information night on 12/7/16 7pm @ Washington-Lee HS. Additional information is listed on the Washington-Lee IB website: http://www.apsva.us/domain/2179
