Springbrook's Mission Statement
Springbrook High School, with its mosaic of cultures, challenges students academically to recognize and appreciate their individual talents. Thus empowered, students become lifelong learners who are culturally inquisitive, technologically adept, and prepared to contribute to and thrive in an interdependent world.
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 IB (International Baccalaureate) World and Information Technology school.
As an IB World School we are one of eight high schools in Montgomery County, and the only high school in the Northeast Consortium of schools, accredited to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to eleventh and twelfth grade students, and one of three high schools, and the only high school in the Northeast Consortium of schools, in Montgomery County accredited to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program to ninth and tenth grade students. Students who complete the two year IB Diploma Programme are better equipped for future endeavors than are students participating in any other high school program.
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 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 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.
