Dear Families Interested in the Diploma Programme @ Huron,
A few frequently asked questions/answers to share today:
Q1: If a current 8th grader wants to be in the Diploma Programme at Huron in 11th grade, should they transfer to Huron for 9th grade?
Answer: Students/families should consider transferring to Huron for 9th grade. This makes sense because students will be exposed to IB styles of teaching and learning through some units of inquiry during 9th and 10th grade as the Middle Years Programme is developed. This exposure will likely help the student make the best/most successful transition to the Diploma Programme in 11th grade.
Q2: What classes will be offered as part of the Diploma Programme at Huron starting the fall of 2017?
Answer: We have a draft list of classes we expect to offer to the first group of students entering the DP...and expect to announce the classes soon. It will be an attractive set of options for students wanting a DP option for high school. Stay tuned.
Q3: Will all students in 9th and 10th grade at Huron be "IB students"?Answer: Yes. The Middle Years Programme is inclusive by design and is appropriate for all students. The following link should help to show this and explain further: http://a2-ib.blogspot.com/p/ib-programs-overview.html
I hope these questions and answers are helpful to you. If you have other questions, please let me know.Kevin Karr
