What is the Diploma Program?
The IB Diploma Program is a comprehensive and challenging pre-university course of study that demands the best from students. The program is taught over two years and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities. Fenton has been authorized to teach the IB Diploma Program since 2008.
These academically challenging and balanced classes help students develop skills in critical thinking and problem solving, innovation, and initiative. Students will develop an in-depth understanding of concepts studied in these classes, become ready to debate real-world issues from an international perspective, and increase their aptitude for effectively communicating their knowledge, opinions, and ideas.
The IB Diploma Program is for students in grades 11 and 12. Currently at Fenton High School, 240 students participate in the IB Diploma Program by taking one or more Diploma Program classes. Fenton High School’s sixth cohort of Full Diploma students will graduate in June. These students have taken on the challenge of 6 Diploma Program classes, the IB Theory of Knowledge class, a research essay and out-of-classroom experiences which are called CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service). The Full Diploma is highly regarded as excellent preparation for success in both career and college.
