When does a student enter IB?
Students normally enter the International Baccalaureate program as freshmen and enroll in the East High Pre-IB (PIB) program of studies for the ninth and tenth grades. The East High PIB program comprises a specific sequence of 9th and 10th grade courses at East High, designed to prepare students for the rigors of the formal IB diploma program encountered during the eleventh and twelfth grades. Under exceptional circumstances, students completing ninth grade elsewhere can be admitted into the EHS pre-IB program as sophomores. We do not consider admittance for juniors and seniors unless they have been pursuing an IB diploma at another IB school.
