All students are required to take English HL, Chemistry HL, History SL or HL, and Math SL or HL due to the nature of the IBDP, but every student in the would have the choice between 5 Programme Paths:

  • Life-Sciences IB (2 IB Sciences with Chemistry Biology) 
  • Engineering IB (2 IB Sciences with Chemistry and Physics) 
  • Humanities IB (2 IB Humanities with History and Philosophy) 
  • Visual Arts IB (IBDP with a Group 6 Visual Arts Course) 
  • Film Studies IB (IBDP with a Group 6 Film Studies Course)

Within each Programme Path, all students have:

  • The choice of an IB Language to be made at the start of Grade 10. Either:
    • French ab initio SL IB OR 
    • Spanish ab initio SL IB OR 
    • Chinese ab initio or SL at the Chinese Academy OR 
    • Mandarin ab initio or SL at the Chinese Academy 
  • The choice of between Math HL IB or History HL IB to be made by the end of Grade 10.

It is possible for students to switch their Programme Path until the end of Grade 10.

Alberta Education versus International Baccalaureate Mark Calculation Group 5: Mathematics SL/HL

The Mathematics International Baccalaureate Program - Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL) - provides students with an in-depth mathematics program that includes all curriculum required by Alberta Education, as well as additional topics required by the IBO. Any assignment(s) that is/are externally marked for the IB portion of the course are not considered part of the students Alberta Education mark.

In all of the IB Math courses students are regularly evaluated throughout the course with tests and quizzes that include topics from both the Alberta Education curriculum and the IB curriculum.

In the Math IB courses Math 10C Pre-IB, Math 20-1 IB, Math 31 IB SL and Math 31 IB HL, students will write a final exam that contains only Alberta Education curriculum. At this point, the final exam mark and final course mark for the IB classes is compared to the final exam mark and final course mark for the non-IB classes and an adjustment amount is determined - same value for every student in the IB course.  For example, if in the non-IB class the final course mark was 2% higher than their final exam mark, then the IB final course mark would be adjusted to be 2% higher than their final exam mark. In  the  Math  30-1  IB  course,  students  will  write  two  cumulative  exams  during  the semester that contain only Alberta Education curricula. At the end of the course (before the diploma examination), the cumulative exam mark and the school awarded course mark for the IB classes is compared to the cumulative exam mark and the school awarded course mark for the non-IB classes and an adjusted amount is determined - same value for every student in the IB course (same process as the example above). The school awarded course mark is then averaged with the diploma exam mark to get the final course mark.

In the Math 35 IB HL course, students are regularly evaluated throughout with tests and quizzes that include only topics required by the IB curriculum as there is not an equivalent Alberta Education high school course.

What fees are involved for IB?

The International Baccalaureate Programme, being a program of choice, charges students additional fees over and above regular program school fees in Grade 11 and 12. HWW collects these fees and submits them to IB directly on behalf of all IB students. The fees for assessments and exams are collected in both Grade 11 and 12 depending on the students’ registration in IB courses. Families will be invoiced for IB fees in October for next school year. Being a program of choice, there is no wavering of fees that would apply to these IB costs. Please note, once a student is registered into an IB course, it is a commitment that they will complete the external and internal assessments that are a component of the programme over the duration of the semester and pay ALL necessary IB fees.

Fees that you and your parents or guardians are responsible for:

  • Families are responsible for paying fees set by the IBO (subject fees, exam registration fees) and courier costs
  • There are IB Programme registration fees and individual course fees.
  • The current fees are $250* for registration and $225 for courses + $60 courier fee (these change annually and are set by IB).

*IB Diploma Students (full IB) pay the IB Registration Fee only once, however, IB Course Students (partial IB) would be charged this both in grade 11 and 12 if they had IB courses in both years.
