IB Diploma Programme at PCSH

Park Center students began taking DP classes in 2009 and many are pursuing the full International Baccalaureate Diploma. Any student is eligible to take these rigorous, college preparatory courses.

We offer 19 different IB courses in a wide range of subject areas. You can challenge yourself in the arts, science, mathematics, history, a second language or high level English.

In a typical year about 400 PCSH students from the 11th and 12th grade take at least one IB course!  We have between 15 and 25 students each year who choose to take a full IB schedule making them candidates to earn the IB Diploma which is recognized by schools all over the US and the world as an outstanding indicator of university success. 

Some IB diploma holders will receive dozens of college credits while anyone taking even one IB course can earn credit at college for their successful completion of the exams. View a slide show of Park Center's previous IB Diploma Recipients.

If you are from outside our attendance area, you may apply to attend Park Center through the NorthWest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD). Transportation is provided to any student living in one of the cooperating districts, including Anoka-Hennepin, Brooklyn Center, Fridley, Elk River, Rockford, Mounds View and Buffalo.
