IB Exam Registration

IB Exam registration is just around the corner.   Do you know the qualifications for the awarding of an IB diploma?  Do you understand the significance of selecting the best HL and SL testing combination?  Are you aware how of colleges and universities are using IB scores for placement and/or for credit?  Did you know there is a substantial fee increase if your child misses the registration deadline or registers for the wrong examination? 

IB Diploma Coordinator, Patricia Wetmore and the IB Counselors will present, "IB Exam Registration—Do's and Don'ts" at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, Oct 8th in the Smoky Hill Lecture Center.  A make-up meeting will be held on Monday, October 12th, in the Lecture Center.  All IB seniors and IB juniors who are testing in the May 2016 examination session are required to attend (with their parent/guardian) before they can register.  (The meeting is optional for seniors who tested in the May 2015 examination session.  Registration materials will be available in the IB office Tuesday, October 13th.  Test fees are due Wednesday, November 4th.

IB 5-year Review

Our IB World School is currently completing our Diploma program self-study due December 2015.  We are excited about the opportunity to reflect on how we've implemented the IB program at Smoky Hill.   A link to the parent survey can be found on the IB page under announcements on the Smoky Hill Website.  All parents of current IB juniors and seniors and parents of graduates 2010-2015 are encouraged to share their thoughts about our program.  Surveys will close October 31, 2015. 

MYP Personal Project

The MYP Sophomores are busy working on their Personal Projects.  They receive their supervisor assignments this month and they will need to locate a project mentor, who is an expert in the area they are pursuing.  If students need help locating a mentor, please contact Jen Radosevich or Kathleen Fitzgerald, the Personal Project co-coordinators (contact info is on the IB page on the Smoky Hill website).   Their research should be in full swing by the end of this month!
