Park Center Senior High has been authorized as an IB World School since 2007. We offer two of the IB programmes which collectively include virtually all of our students at some point in their years at Park Center.
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) includes all grades 9 and 10 students at Park Center. The Middle Years Programme teaches tools for lifelong learning and fosters responsible attitudes that help students discover how to use what they learn to take principled action. Additionally, the MYP encourages students to be critical, creative, and reflective thinkers. More information about the MYP is available on the IB website.

It is a rigorous series of 22 courses designed to prepare students for success in even the most selective colleges and universities across the US and the world. It exists in thousands of schools around the world and Park Center is one of only 19 schools in Minnesota to be authorized to offer the Programme.
