Annual Informational Session Opportunity to Learn About Many School Course Options
ELK GROVE, Calif. – December 13, 2018 – Laguna Creek High School will hold an International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme and Advanced Placement (AP) Course Offering Informational Night on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s Black Box Theater. The informational night will cover an overview of the IB Programme curriculum, requirements and enrollment process as well as Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered at LCHS.
Students who participate in IB Programmes reap a variety of benefits, including becoming more culturally-aware through the development of a second language, being able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world and are more likely to perform well academically – often better than students in other programs – and enroll at top universities.
The Laguna Creek IB Programme has earned distinction for high standards of academic rigor, as well as achieving a pass rate that is on par with national pass rates and higher than the international pass rate. On average, 40-50 students are enrolled as IB Results (full-diploma) students, and more than 150 students take an IB course per year. This has proven to be an excellent program as the Laguna Creek High School test passing rate improved from 83 percent to 89 percent in 2018 compared to the previous year. Laguna Creek High School is the only high school in the Elk Grove Unified School District and one of only five high schools in Sacramento County to offer the prestigious IB Diploma program.
