  • The IB Diploma Program (IBDP) at Franklin is a two-year cohort dedicated to preparing students for university level work with the support and guidance of their high school teachers. IBDP is a globally recognized program that focuses on development of the student as a learner, as a person, and as a community member.

  • The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is designed as an academically challenging and balanced program of education with final examinations that prepare students for success at the university level and beyond. The program is taught over two years and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.
    IB Diploma students study six academic areas over two years in which they are awarded points on a scale of 1 to 7. Students complete assessment tasks in the classroom, which are scored by their teachers, and then moderated by IB. Additionally, students take written examinations at the end of the program, which are marked by external IB examiners.
