International Baccalaureate

Student with project "Where He's Gone"

The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is a recognized leader in the field of international education, encouraging students to be active learners, well-rounded individuals, and engaged world citizens.

IB is a rigorous course of studies, leading to examinations, that meets the needs of highly motivated eleventh and twelfth-grade students.

We encourage all Hanover students to consider taking part in the IB program. It’s a great move toward future opportunities.

Eighth grade students interested in the IB program should speak with their school counselor. 


For general questions, please contact Dr. Robert Staley, Director Secondary Education.
