International Baccalaureate

  • Magnet Course Card for Incoming 9th Grade Students

    Boyd H. Anderson High School is proud to be at the forefront in affording as many students as possible, the opportunity to experience the rigor and holistic approach the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program provides. As the IB Center of Lauderdale Lakes, we are proud to house the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).

    The IB-MYP provides a framework of learning that encourages our 9th and 10th students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers.  The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge that encourages students to make connections with their studies in traditional subjects and the real world.  The IB-DP is an academically challenging and balanced program of education that prepares our 11th and 12th grade students for success at university and life beyond.  It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being of students. The IB-Diploma Program has gained recognition and respect from the world's leading universities. Upon completion of the IB Diploma Program,  students benefit from the college credits they received for the IB courses, as well as the scholarships that are made available to IB Diploma recipients.
