FCPS IB Programs

Welcome to the FCPS IB programs webpage. FCPS is committed to student achievement and preparation for both 21st century careers and college-readiness. The International Baccalaureate (IB) has been adopted by FCPS to assist in reaching those goals. At James Monroe High School, the IB Diploma Program (DP) for grades 11-12 has been implemented, and at both James Monroe High School and Walker-Grant Middle School, the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) for grades 6-10 is authorized. FCPS has entered the candidacy phase to seek authorization to offer the Primary Years Program (PYP) at both Hugh Mercer Elementary School and Lafayette Upper Elementary School. This would establish FCPS as an IB Continuum school division where students would be exposed to the IB’s approach to teaching and learning from grades K to 12.

The IB philosophy and mission statement state, “These programmes (sic) encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners…”
