From AP courses to Dual Credit enrollment, Frisco ISD now adds an additional program for students, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

Frisco High School is officially the first in the district to be recognized as an IB World school. The curriculum will be implemented starting in the 2021-2022 school year with the class of 2023. 

“We are excited about the opportunity to serve students from across FISD through this new program,” Frisco High School Principal Danny Barrentine said in the FISD news release. “The students who have joined the IB cohorts at FHS are a remarkable addition to our stellar student body.

Through IB, students are provided a holistic education that prepares them not only to be college students but also educated citizens of the world. Aside from the rigorous classes, students must complete a Theory of Knowledge class, Extended Essay, and Service project as part of the requirements of the program. 

“In a world where we regularly interact with people across the world, international mindedness is more important than ever,” managing director of academic programs Dr. Angela Romney said in the FISD news release. “We are honored to host this esteemed program and curriculum in the District and look forward to the continued success and opportunities for our students.”
