3 The International Baccalaureate Organization The International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation based in Switzerland. The IB offers three programs for students; Primary Years Program (PYP) for kindergarten through 5 th grade, Middle Years Program (MYP) for grades 6 through 10, and Diploma Program (DP) for grades 11 and 12. There are more than 906,000 IB students at 3,147 schools in 140 countries. The IB provides a balanced curriculum and high standards of assessment. IB offers an advanced curriculum for students and teaches students how to become critical thinkers and life-long learners. The emphasis of the curriculum is on how a student processes, analyzes, and integrates the facts presented to them instead of how many facts a student can memorize and recall on an exam. Every IB teacher has gone through rigorous trainings in order to learn about the curriculum and exams their students will be expected to take. IB Mission Statement The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. IB promotes intercultural understanding and respect To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. IB website: IB Learner Profile IB learners strive to be: Inquirers Knowledgeable Thinkers Communicators Principled Open-minded Caring Risk-takers Balanced Reflective The Oakmont High School IB staff expects that all IB students are willing to further develop these 10 attributes in and outside of school. Students who can embrace the Learner Profile are found to be more successful IB Diploma candidates. IB Diploma Program Students who wish to receive the full IB Diploma or take at least one IB course must plan their four years at Oakmont High School carefully. Students must meet district, state, IB, and college admission requirements. IB students must complete and pass the appropriate pre-requisites for the IB classes prior to the start of their junior year. The IB courses are divided into Higher Level (HL) courses and Standard Level (SL) courses. These courses can only be taken during the 11 th and 12 th grade years. All IB Students and Parents need to understand that: Each IB class is two semesters in length. Sometimes these classes are covered in one school year, but most of the time the courses are one term each in grade 11 and 12. All HL courses must be studied over the 11 th and 12 th grades. If a student starts an IB class, they are expected to complete the IB class. 3

4 If a student takes an IB class they are expected to complete all of the required examinations for IB. IB exams are paid for by the IB student in October of the school year that they will sit for the exam. The May 2014 exam fees were $157 one time registration fee and $108 per exam fee. Every IB class is weighted by RJUHSD except the Theory of Knowledge course. All IB classes, including TOK, meet at least one area of the A-G list. The current A-G list will be found in the current Oakmont course catalog. Transfer students must take at least 3 IB classes in their junior year (TOK included). To receive the IB Diploma students must: 1. Pass exams in 6 subject areas of the hexagon. A student must take 3-4 HL courses/exams and the rest as SL courses/exams. 2. Successfully complete the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course and its assessments. 3. Write an Extended Essay of approximately 4000 words in one of the six areas of the hexagon. 4. Complete Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) activities approximately 2-4 hours per week working on their activity.

High school students take this test in their junior year. Website: CAHSEE Testing: The primary purpose of the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) is to significantly improve pupil achievement in public high schools and to ensure that pupils who graduate from public high schools can demonstrate grade level competency in reading, writing, and mathematics. Website: College and Scholarship Testing The following tests are administered outside of school hours ~ PSAT/NMSQT: PSAT/NMSQT stands for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test. It also gives you a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs. Website: SAT: The SAT Reasoning Test is a measure of the critical thinking skills you'll need for academic success in college. The SAT assesses how well you analyze and solve problems skills you learned in school that you'll need in college. Web: SAT Subject Tests: Subject Tests are designed to measure your knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as your ability to apply that knowledge. Students take the Subject Tests to demonstrate to colleges their mastery of specific subjects like English, history, mathematics, science, and language. Web: ACT: The ACT test assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay. 8

9 Website: AP: AP exams are offered annual to enable secondary students to demonstrate college-level achievement. College Board offers 37 exams for students to take. High scores on these exams can give you the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at many universities. Website: School wide Policies Students and parents should be aware of the four school wide policies that also connect to the IB philosophies and regulations. These policies can be found on the Oakmont and Oakmont IB websites. All IB Parents and Students should be familiar with these policies and procedures. The policies are: Academic Honesty Assessment Policy Special Needs Policy Language Policy Honor Code The honor code is to be used with the OHS IB Academic Honesty Policy. Students must be aware of the policy and the honor code below. 1. Stealing 1.1 One should not borrow anything unless direct permission from the owner has been given. 1.2 Students are expected to respect their peer s and teacher s belongings. 2.

13 Testing Fees The IB Program designs each of its courses to have a rigorous curriculum and examinations for each. Students are expected once they take the IB course that they will be sitting for the examinations as well. For the examinations, students will be paying for their examinations in October of the same school year they will sit for the exam. For the May 2015 exams, students will pay for the exams and register for them in October Payment will be due by the end of October. For families that qualify for the free/reduced meal program will qualify for the reduced testing fee program. For families that need payment plans, they should contact the coordinator before October 1. A one-time registration fee and per exam fee will be paid. The May 2014 fees were $157 registration and $108 per exam. It is expected that the fees will increase for the May 2015 exams. Reduced testing fee program fees are $5 registration and $5 per exam. Annual Reapplication Students are required to reapply to the IB program if they are currently in grades 9 or 10. This application will be available online start in November of each school year.

Check demographic information on file ( addresses, home address, transfer status). Confirm that the student is passing their prerequisite courses with at least a C or better (preferably a B or better) Provide evidence of enrollment in IB at Oakmont (will need to be used by out of district transfer students). Students will also be issued a new handbook annually. Students and parents are expected to read the handbook carefully and then sign the signature paper. 13

14 Frequently Asked Questions Can any student enroll in the IB Diploma Program? No. Students are not IB Diploma Candidates until their 11 th 12 th grades. We do accept applications from students for their 9 th and 10 th grade years. These students are not IB Candidates, but instead are taking preparatory courses for the IB Program. Their progress is carefully monitored by the IB Coordinator. Student must commit to the IB courses for both levels of the course (level 1 and level 2). No courses can be taken at just level 1 or just level 2. Does a student have to apply for their 9 th and 10 th grades? No. Students can wait until the fall term of their 10 th grade to apply to IB. Students must still complete the required prerequisite courses. But, it is highly encouraged for students to apply early on in their high school career so that their grades and preparatory classes can be carefully monitored. Can a student participate in Health Academy, IB and AVID programs? No. Due to the requirements of each program, a student will not be able to fully participate in each program. Instead a student can take a few IB classes with the other program of their choice. This does depend on the number of Diploma Candidates and the space in the classes. What is the difference between IB Diploma Candidate and Certificate Student? IB Diploma students complete one course from each area of the hexagon as well as the three components of the central hexagon. Certificate students complete 1-5 courses from the IB hexagon. Students who enroll in individual courses will receive an IB certificate noting the courses they took and the marks they earned. All students must take the exam at the end of the course no matter whether they are certificate or diploma students. Do IB classes earn weighted grades? Yes. All IB classes, except Theory of Knowledge, receive a weighted grade (i.e. A = 5pts instead of 4pts for the GPA). IB classes follow the same guidelines for weighted grades as Honors and AP classes. Please check with your desired universities on accepting weighted grades as each have their own policies. Do students have to attend Oakmont to be an IB student? Yes. IB permits only students enrolled and attending full time in an IB School to participate in the IB Diploma Program. IB is a full two-year commitment; students need to transfer full-time to Oakmont to allow for these courses to be taken. Do universities accept IB classes? Yes. Many universities accept the IB program in similar form to AP courses. You can visit the IB web site to search for a specific university and their IB recognition policy: Recipients of the IB Diploma have a high rate of acceptance at universities world-wide. Where can I find out more information about IB?
