Rifle High School is currently taking applications from students who are interested in participating in the International Baccalaureate program.

Incoming freshmen will take two years of honors classes at Rifle High School, and then be eligible for the International Baccalaureate diploma program as a junior.

The IB program involves two years of intensive, college-level coursework in math, science, language and literature, foreign language, social studies and the arts in a student’s junior and senior years of high school.

An IB diploma can be worth up to 24 credit hours when an IB graduate enrolls in college. International Baccalaureate programs offer academic breadth and depth, create independent learners and strong writers, encourages critical thinking, and IB students have proven time management skills.

If you would like additional information on the International Baccalaureate program at Rifle High School, please contact Brad Skinner or Mandy Wells at 970-665-7725.
