Proviso Township High Schools District 209 is proud to offer two International Baccalaureate programs of study to its students. Proviso East High School is currently a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP). Proviso West High School is authorized for both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme (CP). Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy is authorized for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
These rigorous and relevant courses of study are available to 11th and 12th grade students. Students can apply to be part of the DP (or CP at Proviso West) during their sophomore year at their school.
The IB DP and CP are programs that give students access to collegiate-level coursework within the supportive and attentive environment of a high school. Students who participate in an IB program learn critical thinking skills that will set them up for success in college, career or the military. These programs also can provide students with opportunities to obtain college credit while in high school. DP students are eligible to earn an internationally-recognized high school diploma. Our Proviso IB alumni share that the IB prepares them well for the rigors of college, giving them a strong educational foundation as they begin their adult lives.
