International Baccalaureate (IB)

IB students are ready for college, career, and life in the 21st century.

Universities, colleges, and businesses desire IB students because they know they are strongly prepared, capable, and ready to take on challenges.      

IB is available to ALL LHS juniors and seniors.

Students who complete the FULL DIPLOMA programme can earn up to 1.5 full credit years of college (typically students earn 16-30+ credits!).

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.

IB full diploma students are prepared for college and the 21st century workplace.

“Education that is academically rigorous, deliberately multi-cultural, and concerned with developing personal values that include a commitment to community service is an invaluable resource for any and all of us.”
