At Burbank IB World High School, we believe in developing lifelong learners who are able to communicate their ideas in a knowledgeable and reflective way that encourages creativity, open-mindedness and principled behaviors in our global society. We provide students with this unique environment through our campus pathways and magnet preparatory program, International Baccalaureate (IB). As an IB World School for the Diploma Programme, and a candidate for the Middle Years Programme, students have the opportunity to earn a minimum 24 hours of college credit to any publicly funded university or college in the state of Texas. Students may also earn college credit through a variety of AP and dual credit offerings. Our industry certifications and licenses, as well as our internships provide an opportunity for our students to network and be work ready upon graduation.
