IB Programme

IB Programme

The purpose of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme is to provide a thorough study of the various core disciplines, a holistic view of knowledge, intercultural awareness and communication, and the development of global ethics and values. The aim is to awaken the intelligence of students and teach them to recognize relationships between school subjects and the world outside the school walls by combining knowledge, experience and critical observations. IB schools are known for their rigorous college preparatory program.

In the fall of 2015, the International Baccalaureate Organization authorized Eliot-Hine as an official IB Middle Years Programme. Eliot-Hine’s Middle Years Programme offers a curriculum for students in Grades 6–8 committed to promoting independent learning, critical thinking, and inquisitiveness. 

Along with a core curriculum that meets and exceeds district standards, students are involved in community service, foreign language courses, and the visual and performing arts. These exploration-focused courses allow students to learn by doing.

8th Grade IB Community Projects

Watch to see how students benefit from the 8th Grade IB Community Project, a graduation requirement for Eliot-Hine students.

As part of the program, 8th Grade students must complete a year-long service project, addressing a need that they see in their community, however they define it. Students are required to keep a process journal to reflect the journey through their research. See a real example of a student project.

The project culminates in a review panel made up of teachers, parents, community members, peers, and in Eliot-Hines case, students from Eastern High School’s IB Diploma Programme.
