Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School has been authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program since September 2001. The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is a recognized  leader in the field of international education, encouraging students to be active learners, well-rounded individuals and engaged world citizens. There are over 1800 IB schools located in 120 countries worldwide, and Lo-Ellen Park is proud to be one of them.

 

The Diploma Program prepares students for university and encourages them to:

  • ask challenging questions
  • learn how to learn
  • develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture
  • develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.

At the end of the two-year program, students are assessed both internally and externally in ways that measure individual performance against stated objectives for each subject.

The IBO works closely with universities in all regions of the world to gain recognition for the IB diploma. To aid this process, university admissions officers and government officials have direct online access to all syllabuses and recent examinations.

IB graduates from Lo-Ellen Park have gone on to thrive in many competitive enrolment programs at Ontario, Canadian and American universities, and are often the recipients of valuable scholarships.

Acceptance
Students must successfully complete the grade 9 and 10 Pre-IB program at Lo-Ellen Park before entering the IB Diploma Program in Grade 11. Thus, students must apply for entry from Grade 8. A combination of high academic performance, teacher recommendation and an interview (in some cases) are required for acceptance into the program. In Grades 9 and 10, all compulsory subjects are taught at an enriched level to prepare students for the academic rigour of the IB Diploma.

All qualified students living in the Rainbow District School Board will be provided transportation to Lo-Ellen Park for the Pre-IB and IB Program.
