2018-19  IB Student Leadership Ongoing Projects

Freshmen Integration into the MYP, Pre-Diploma Pathway, and the IB Program

The adjustment from middle school, especially non-IB schools to the MYP and IB Programs at Poudre is not a walk in the park. The IB Staff and IB Student Leadership work very hard to help freshmen get acclimated to PHS and the IB program, and set them up for success in the DP, AP classes or any other coursework at PHS. The main tool is the Pre-Diploma pathway Freshman Seminar classes.
