For those who have not yet heard, we have received authorization to offer the IB Diploma Program at Port Chester High School.  Here is a link to the press release sent out on May 29.
 
We have received wonderful responses to this news.  I share every bit of the joy, excitement, and pride with the staff who have played a role in making this happen - from attending and hearing about this idea at a Board meeting in November 2011, to participating on the IB Exploratory Committee, the IB Application Committee, in IB Teacher Training, or supporting the cause in any other way. 
 
This point forward marks a new day for Port Chester High School as we embark on our future as an IB World School, offering the IB Diploma Program to junior and seniors and guiding and supporting our underclassmen toward future IB opportunities.  This is a significant step for this institution.
 
None of this could have been possible without the dedicated efforts of prospective IB teachers who assisted with the application by developing course outlines that they hoped to teach.  As a team of IB teachers, they will be asked to meet for one period during the day to ease our transition to offering the IB Diploma Program, coordinate assignments, and grow together with the program that they are building.  They will be pioneers here and are brave to have sought to be part of this endeavor.  They will get to work with some of our most motivated students and that to any teacher is a reward in and of itself.
 
Again, congratulations to us all for this accomplishment for our school.  I look forward to what the IB will bring in terms of additional positive changes.
 
Regards,
Mitchell A. Combs, Ph.D. Principal
