On Tuesday, Nov. 3, Desert Mountain High School will host an informational night for all eighth grade students and their families who are interested in learning more about the International Baccalaureate program and the pre-diploma program.

Families will learn about the application process, shadowing program and entrance requirements. Additionally, transportation information will be shared for those families that live outside Desert Mountain High School boundaries.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Desert Mountain High School auditorium, 12575 E. Via Linda in Scottsdale.

The IB Diploma Program is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at junior and senior high school students, according to a press release. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.

The IB program prepares students for college and encourages them to ask challenging questions, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and gives students a broad perspective on worldwide issues that will be relevant to them in the future.

A panel of administrators, teachers, students and parents involved in the IB program will be available to answer questions, the release stated.

Families should park in the lot between Desert Mountain High School and Mountainside Middle School and enter through the east doors.
