Parents and 8th-10th graders are invited to attend our BSH IB Information Night on Monday, January 8 at 6:30 PM in the Bend High Auditorium.

Following the presentation, there will be an exhibit showcasing current IB Diploma students’ experiences. The IB Coordinators and IB students will be available to answer questions.

The BSH IB Programme is a priority consideration for Bend-LaPine Schools. If you do not reside in the BSH boundary you will need to fill out an Area Change Request (ACR) form. Acceptance into the Bend High School will be based on space and availability. ACR forms must be turned in by January 19, 2024. For more information about ACR’s, go to the Bend-LaPine ACR site.

We encourage students and families to pursue our most rigorous, college and career preparatory classes, many of which will translate into college credits.
