International Baccalaureate (IB)

Running Springs is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

There are no tests to gain admission and no IQ or other requirements to participate in the programme.  The PYP is accessible to all Running Springs students.
