Canyon Campus High School is an International Baccalaureate World
School. All students in grades 6-10 access the International
Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). In the 11th and 12th grade,
students may pursue the IB Diploma Programme, the IB Career-Related
Programme, be an IB Scholar, or access the IB experience through general
coursework. We believe that ALL students should access the most
rigorous coursework available to them.
The International Baccalaureate experience is different from other curricula because it:
encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
develop multilingual students.
International Baccalaureate aspires to help schools develop
well-rounded students with character who respond to challenges with
optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make
ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity
and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and
unpredictable situations. Students who access the IB will:
be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
take part in programmes of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world
become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
ask challenging questions
develop research skills proven to help them in higher education.
