The International Baccalaureate Program
In grades 11 & 12, Brent follows a program based on the curriculum of the International Baccalaureate Organization. The IB Diploma program is based on the principle of learning to learn. It requires all students to take three subjects at Higher Level and three subjects at Standard Level. For students who may not be able to fulfill the requirements of all six IB course in addition to the core program of Community, Action, and Service (CAS), Extended Essay, and Theory of Knowledge (TOK), individual IB subject certificates may be granted for the the exams. A good pass at Higher Level normally gains credits toward North American College courses.
