Hillsboro students interested in pursuing the IB Diploma will choose courses from six academic areas: language, world language, individuals and societies, experimental sciences, mathematics, and the arts. At least three of these areas must be taken at a “higher” level. Diploma candidates must also complete three core components: the Theory of Knowledge capstone course, a 4,000-word Extended Essay, and 150 hours of Creativity/Action/Service.
Students in the IB Career-related Program (IBCP) will take of at least two DP courses along with career-related studies and the IBCP core. This plan is designed to create a bridge that connects each student’s chosen Diploma Program courses and career-related studies.
