May IB students enroll in regular East High courses?

Posted by:

Yes, IB students are expected to enroll in elective courses offered at East High as well as East courses required for a Wichita Public Schools diploma. These courses are described in detail in the Wichita Public Schools High School Program of Studies. However, IB students and parents should keep in mind that one of the characteristics of IB that makes it so appealing to colleges and universities is the fact that IB is a prescriptive program. Because it is prescriptive, it does not allow for many electives. Students wishing to pursue three electives each year will not be able to do so within the IB program.
