In the quest for expanding internationalism and raising academic standards to a global level, DeKalb County has implemented the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Druid Hills High School, Martin Luther King, Jr. High School, and Tucker High School.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme began in the early 1960s as a pre-university program to prepare students with academic, creative, and humanitarian skills not only to be accepted to any university worldwide, but also to successfully earn degrees. The IB Programme is authorized in 3102 schools in 140 countries. Georgia has 25 IB Diploma Programmes. The IB Programme is recognized for the rigor of study and emphasis on global content and language development.
An expansive number of universities throughout the world recognize the IB pre-university preparation by granting freshman exemptions or sophomore standing to entering students.
