"The IB programme is amazing. It opens my eyes to things I would never realize in a normal class."
-- Brianna

The International Baccalaureate, known as IB, offers three high quality and challenging educational programmes for a worldwide community of schools. IB students are curious, fully engaged citizens who embrace their own culture and are open to other cultures and views. In TUSD, IB is offered at Cholla High Magnet School, Safford K-8 Magnet, and Robison K-5 Magnet.

TUSD's IB programmes have a strong international dimension and draw on content from educational cultures around the world.

They also give special emphasis to learning languages and encouraging students to become responsible members of their community.

The programmes:
