    PARENT & STUDENT COMMITMENT

    BELOW IS PROGRAM INFORMATION FOR PARENTS / GUARDIANS

     

    PROGRAM INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

    We request that you peruse the following documents:

    ACADEMIC HONESTY

    Parents and students, please acknowledge you have read and can commit to our policy on academic honesty.

    Two Diplomas: D51 and IB

    Parents and students, IB students will be working toward two diplomas. Please acknowledge the following:

    •  We are a full-diploma program only, and students commit to a rigorous course of study that must include the core and six subject groups.
    •  Pre-IB students will complete many of the D51 graduation requirements in their freshman and sophomore years; students are official diploma programme students in their junior and senior years.
    •  A pre-IB schedule is somewhat prescriptive; in order to earn a D51 diploma and be ready for the IB diploma programme, our students must take certain pre-requisites.
    • Students must commit to taking course-end IB exams which will determine whether they receive their internationally-recognized IB diplomas. Testing is not optional, and there are fees attached (due the senior year). Those fees are comparable in price to AP fees and can be reduced if the student demonstrates financial need.

    TRANSPORTATION

    Parents and students, we recognize that transportation may be a concern. Many of our students carpool, take one of two IB-buses (with two drop-off/pick-up locations in GJ), take D51 buses, or ride the GVT.
