Do IB students earn regular USD 259 diplomas?
Yes, the IB program is designed so that students meet all the requirements for a Wichita Public Schools diploma. Students should work closely with the IB counselor and coordinator to ensure that they enroll in courses required for a USD 259 diploma. These requirements include but are not limited to one year of Physical Education Foundations, one year of fine arts, one semester of CTE, one semester of financial literacy, and one semester of U.S. Government. Students who take EHS Pre-IB A.P. U.S. History but leave the IB program prior to graduation are responsible for taking a second year of U.S. History in order to meet USD 259 graduation requirements.
