Henry Wise Wood School 

Henry Wise Wood HS is the designated IB school for ALL interested Grade 9 CBE students living in Areas V and VI.

The IB Programme is a rigorous academic program intended for students successful in Grade 9 classes who would like to challenge themselves in high school and be better prepared ultimately for post-secondary. Grade 9 students who are interested should register in a minimum of two IB courses in order to be eligible and have 3’s and 4’s in these subjects.
For detailed information about the IB Program, consult our IB Booklet and their school website.

There are two informational videos for students and parents.  They recommend families to view the videos before registering into the IB Programme.  For information on registration, please visit the IB Registration webpage.
