International Baccalaureate® Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.


IB and Signature Programs

    Springbrook High School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World school.

    As an IB World School, we are one of three high schools to offer the IB Regional application program, which allows students to attend Springbrook High School to take rigorous classes in 9th and 10th grade in order to prepare them for the IB Diploma Programme (one of eight in MCPS) to 11th and 12th grade students. Students who complete the two year IB Diploma Programme are better equipped for future endeavors, in college and careers, than are students participating in any other high school program. More information here.

    Springbrook High School also offers programs to all students through our Academy of Information Technology (computer programming, computer network design and administration, web design, and microcomputer technologies). Students in AOIT participate in paid internships their junior and senior years with such companies as FDA, NOAA, NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman. 

    Rounding out Springbrook’s Signature offerings are programs of study which include Project Lead the Way Enginering, Justice, Law and Society, Hospitality Management, and Early Child Development. Students can start these programs as freshmen or sophomores and pursue coursework to launch careers in engineering, law, food service, and early childhood education related fields.

    All of Springbrook’s Signature offerings, besides providing an excellent preparation for every student’s future, carry the potential for college credit, scholarship opportunities, and/or specific career certifications.
