FAQ’s:

What is International Baccalaureate (IB)?
 IB is a College Prep Program for 11th and 12th
graders that includes volunteer work, looks at
global issues, and provides the opportunity for
college credit
 IB MYP (Middle Years Programme) is for all 9th
and 10th graders and provides a framework for
academic challenge and life skills with a global
perspective in mind
 All MPS High Schools except South and North
High have IB (they have Advanced PlacementAP courses)
FAQ’s:

What is the difference between South
Open, South All Nations, and South
Liberal Arts?
 All of these programs are very similar...
 South Open is based in 4 principals (democracy, authenticity,
academic challenge, and choice) and focuses on critical thinking
skills through experiential learning (projects, teamwork,
independence, etc.), social justice, building community, and
lifelong learning (basically think Montessori!)
 South All Nations is a program made specifically for American
Indian students and has unique classes such as Ojibwe
language, Native Arts, with a focus on giving back to the Native
community as well
 South Liberal Arts is like most high school classroom settings
with community service hours also attached to graduation
requirements (for Open and All Nations as well)
