IB Fees are collected through schoolday.  Invoices will be sent out soon for the 2023-24 school year.

Note – As of the 2021-22 school year, teacher recommendation letters are NO LONGER required for the application package.

Students attending Cambridge and surrounding elementary schools can access this unique learning opportunity at GPSS.  The IB programme allows students to explore their personal and academic interests via the International Baccalaureate model. Depending on their post-secondary aspirations and learning goals, students have the option of completing individual IB courses or completing the full IB Diploma.

Both program options are valuable and should be chosen based on an individual student’s needs.

“The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet…IB programmes therefore provide students with opportunities for sustained inquiry into a range of local and global issues and ideas”

We encourage applications from grade 8 students who love learning, are internationally-minded, and see themselves in the IB Learner Profile attributes (inquirer, knowledgeable, thinker, communicator, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-taker, balanced, reflective)
