Do you want your kids to think independently? Become culturally-aware? Learn a second language? Engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world? This is just what the International Baccalaureate (IB) program cultivates at Aspen High School (AHS). AHS takes pride in its open enrollment policy, allowing any student to participate in the IB Program provided he/she has taken the course prerequisites. We currently test around 70 percent of the senior class in at least one IB subject every year. This year, we have grown the program to include an additional 50 students. The full IB diploma numbers have increased by 30 percent, with 26 juniors enrolled in the diploma class of 2019. AEF funds the IB Coordinator and teacher training.
