• High Point Central's IB Program

    High Point Central High School is an authorized IB World School offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in the 11th and 12th grades. From the IB aims and objectives, Central created its magnet school theme of Internationalism and Languages. All students enrolled in the honors classes at Central are exposed to the rigorous standards of the internationally recognized IB Diploma Programme.

    The IB program’s philosophy is infused throughout all subject areas using the magnet school’s objectives:

    1. Teachers will present curriculum to students through experimental, inquiry-based, interdisciplinary lessons.

    1. Students will be required to think and reason at high levels and to ask and answer analytical questions.

    1. Students will develop advanced research skills.

    1. Students will master written and verbal communication of ideas.

    1. Faculty and staff will stress the social, physical and cognitive well-being of each student to prepare them for involvement in community and extra-curricular activities.

    1. Students will recognize the roles and responsibilities of being members of the international community.

    1. Students and teachers will integrate cutting-edge technology into their work products.

    HP Central’s magnet program is open to students whose home high school is High Point Central, Southwest Guilford, or High Point Andrews. Transportation is provided to magnet students by Guilford County Schools. Students at HP Central are taught the North Carolina Standard Course of study for each course, but with a global focus.
