IB Exams

May 2015 IB Exams are underway.  Please check the Smoky Hill IB page for the exam schedule and for rules and regulations regarding exam administration.  Some form of photo identification (school ID or driver's license) is required for admission into each exam.  Students are reminded to eat healthy, drink plenty of water and to get a good night's sleep so they may do their best on their examinations. 

Exam results will be available on July 6 at noon MST via the IBO website:  https://candidates.ibo.org.  Students were given instructions (including a PIN and a personal code) on how to access their exam scores at this site.

IB Senior Recognition Ceremony

Our IB Diploma Candidates will be honored at our annual IB Senior Recognition Ceremony on Monday, May 18th, at 8:30 a.m. in the auditorium.  Superintendent Harry Bull, joined by other Cherry Creek School dignitaries, will be in attendance.  All 9th, 10th and 11th grade IB students are required to attend this ceremony.  Seniors will be given their gold IB stoles they will wear at graduation.  In addition, our photographer Jack Eberhard will take their final class portrait.  Please join us in this wonderful celebration of academic achievement!

Extended Essay Workshop

On Friday, April 10th, our IB Juniors attended a field trip to the UCD-Auraria Library.  Students were given a tour of the facility and met with research librarians who instructed them how to effectively use the academic databases and other search tools available in the library. 

A research-oriented workshop will be held at Smoky Hill High School the week immediately following finals on June 8th-June 12th.   The camp is optional but highly recommended.   On Wednesday, June 10th, we will return to the UCD-Auraria Library for another day of research.  Students will leave the camp with an outline from which to write their essay during the summer.
