Being a 2 university town (with University of North Texas and Texas Women's University), it was no surprise to hear that Denton High School in the moderate sized town of Denton, TX was accepted into the International Baccalaureate of North America. This will make it a part of the IB World School community which will allow it to offer a Diploma Programme (DP).  Much time was spent by Denton ISD personnel in getting the faculty and the curriculum in place to be able to offer this program to the local students of Denton ISD.  This is a highly acclaimed program where the students are focused on learning about other cultures, languages and are given little more universal view of the world.  They encourage students to have a lifelong understanding of different cultures other than their own.  Texas public colleges and universities are mandated to give the students who graduate and earn the IB Diploma up to 24 credit hours.  That's a pretty big 'leg up' for anyone trying to get a start on college these days.  An informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 1st, 2008 at  7pm at the Professional Development Center at 1212 Bolivar in Denton for any parent or student looking to get more information on this program.  Also check out the Denton Independent School district site at www.dentonisd.org.  There are some News releases on it if you scroll down to the bottom.  Or you can call Dr. Lynn Singletary over at Denton High School who is the IB Coordinator at 940-369-2238.  You can read up more on the International Baccalaureate at their website at www.ibo.org
