IB Students Gather

Northport High School International Baccalaureate Diploma program seniors attended a retreat at Frost Valley last weekend, participating in hiking, riding a zip-line, archery, candle making and simple structure design challenges.

The retreat gives students  the opportunity to reflect on the college decision-making process and recharge before the start of their extensive exams.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program is an internationally recognized curriculum that offers 11th and 12th grade students an opportunity to earn the IB Diploma or one or more IB Certificates. To earn the IB Diploma, students must complete and test in six IB subjects; write an extended essay of independent research guided by a faculty mentor; complete 150 hours of creativity, activity, and service activities (CAS); and participate in a critical
thinking course called Theory of Knowledge.
