• What is an IB Education?

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a comprehensive and rigorous two-year curriculum, focused on the development of high quality, academically prepared global citizens. General objectives of the IB program are to provide students with a balanced education, to facilitate geographical and cultural mobility, and to promote international understanding through shared academic experiences.


    The IB Diploma has become a symbol of academic integrity and intellectual promise. The student who satisfies its demands demonstrates a strong commitment to learning, both in terms of the mastery of subject content and in the development of the skills and discipline necessary for success in a competitive world. Classen School of Advanced Studies is the only school in Oklahoma to feature the full implementation of this prestigious diploma program.
