The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is the most comprehensive and highly respected course of study available to high school students. At Mid-Pacific, IB courses are available to students in grades 11 and 12 and provide challenges across the curriculum – something for the artist, the scientist, the mathematician, and the linguist. Participation in the IB Diploma Programme is strongly encouraged but not mandatory. Students can take just a single IB course or multiple courses up to the full IB Diploma. 87% of Mid-Pacific students score at the satisfactory level or higher on their IB exams.
IB classes offer students the benefits of mastery of skills, experiences, and self-confidence. The program offers access to potential admission at top universities, proven college success, possible college credits, and membership in a worldwide network of committed learners and community leaders.

“The IB Diploma Program’s wide array of independent work — including the internal assessments and extended essay — prepared me well for the independent term projects and papers that are commonplace in college!”

“As an IB student, volleyball player and Pūpūkahi I Ke Alō Nā Pua dancer, I honed essential skills in self-discipline and maintaining a healthy school-life balance. I am tremendously grateful for the personal growth and transformative experiences that the IB program provided me.”
