  • News About International Baccalaureate  (IB) at North
    In addition to our current IB Diploma Programme, North High School is now a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). We anticipate this candidacy will last one full school year before the MYP is fully implemented.  The MYP is applicable  to all students at the freshman and sophomore level. It provides a framework for learning which will encourage students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers. The MYP is aligned to the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards. As an IB World School, North promotes and embodies the IB commitment to high quality, challenging and international education. We believe that this philosophy is of utmost importance for our students and will prepare them for success in college, career, and life.
