    Manasquan High School is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

    IB World Schools share a common philosophy--a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-qualty programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.**



    *Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

    **Mission Statement from the IB

    The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become activecompassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. 





    Manasquan High School plans to offer the Diploma Program (DP) for the 2024-2025 school year; therefore, only current sophomores may begin taking courses next year because most of the IB classes run over the course of two years (junior year through senior year). Interested sophomores should meet with their guidance counselors and Mrs. Onorato before selecting next year's courses. Current freshmen should express their interest in the program during this year’s scheduling appointments with their guidance counselors. The video below provides a brief overview and summary of the information provided on January 18, 2024 during the initial information session.
