Gifted Children and International Baccalaureate (IB) Schools

Sunday, June 22, 2008 - by JMcIntosh - Category: Gifted Education

The Hoagies' Gifted Education Page has reprinted an article that offers an overview of International Baccalaureate (IB) schools and considers whether they meet the special needs of gifted children. The article, titled "To IB or Not IB," provides a special focus on IB's implementation in Michigan's public school system; however, overall the article is informative for anyone interested in IB schools and gifted children.

[Modified on July 14, 2008]

One of this blog's readers, Jonna, commented that the article I've cited above is not as general as she expected. She felt that it focused a bit too much on Michigan's public school system. I think she has a good point.

I did a bit more research and found an article on the topic of AP and IB programs from Gifted Child Today that was published back in 2002. I believe the information still holds true, so I am providing that article in the form of a downloadable PDF for those of you would would like to read it. Click this link to download "The Advanced Placement Program and the International Baccalaureate Programme: A History and Update" from the Winter 2002 issue of Gifted Child Today.
