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 of how 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—Everything you Need to Know” at 7:00 p.m. on Oct 4th, 5th, and 6th  in the Lecture Center.  (Seniors are encouraged to attend on Tuesday, October 4th, and juniors on Wednesday, October 5th.  A make up meeting will be held on Thursday, October 6th.)  All IB juniors and seniors who are testing in the May 2012 examination session are required to attend one session before they can register.  (A parent or guardian must be present.)  Mark your calendars!

IB Parent Make up Meetings
If you missed the IB Parent meeting in September, you missed the opportunity to learn how to maximize your student’s college prep experience.  Make-up meetings will be held immediately following the IB Exam Registration meetings on Oct 4th, 5th, and 6th in the Lecture Center.  IB Diploma Coordinator, Patricia Wetmore, MYP Coordinator, Alisa Wills-Keely, and Counseling Coordinator, Michelle Kleve, will be presenting.

MYP Personal Projects
This year will be the first time that Smoky Hill High School sophomores will complete the MYP Personal Project. This year’s sophomore class is the first class to have completed the entire MYP programme—beginning in 6th grade at Laredo Middle School.
The MYP Personal Project allows students to design an area of study and complete a project modeled within the framework of MYP pedagogy.  Students first identify an area of interest and craft a research question within it.  They then design a project that will help them to answer their research question.  Throughout the process, students are guided by a teacher supervisor and a community mentor. The community mentor is someone with expertise in the area of study that the student has chosen.  If you are interested in mentoring a young person, please CLICK THIS LINK to send us your information.  The time commitment is minimal, and the rewards are great!
Super Saturday:
Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 14, 2012.  MYP students will be presenting their projects at Smoky Hill High School.  Come and learn something new as MYP sophomores present their projects to the community!  This day promises to be an exciting day of learning!
If you have questions or would like more information about the MYP Personal Project, please contact Jen Radosevich, MYP Personal Project Coordinator, at
