IB Summer Homework for 19-20 Juniors

Attention Class of 2021: Please click HERE to access IB course summer homework. You should work on the assignments for the classes you are enrolled in for the 19-20 school year. The intent of the work is to introduce you to the course and offer you practice opportunities.  Ms. Wickham will be your point of contact during the summer months for any clarification about assignments. You may reach out to her at courtney_wickham@dpsk12.org. It is important that you are prepared for each of your IB courses so please protect time prior to August to review materials and practice concepts.

Northfield High School, an IB Diploma Programme School

Northfield is one of the newest and fastest growing International Baccalaureate Diploma Programmes in the state of Colorado. Through rigorous coursework, independent research, and community service, our students develop the skills to understand the world as it is while also reimagining what it could be.

IB at NHS places a premium on both rigor and equity. All of our juniors take at least two IB classes, and students can choose to take the full Diploma Programme, which includes six classes, the extended essay, a Theory of Knowledge Course, and IB CAS (community service) program.

We are proud of our pioneering cohort of IB students, who began the program in the 2017-18 school year and will sit for their first exams in May 2018. Students meeting the requirements set out by the IB will receive their diplomas in 2019, before setting off to university programs and careers as lifelong learners.
