Why IB?

IB...  education for a better world

IB World School students develop strong academic, social, and emotional characteristics.

  • They are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
  • They take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world
  • They become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
  • They become able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
Lincoln High School is proud to be one of 15 Wisconsin IB schools and part of the growing worldwide community of over 4000 IB World Schools.
