The main difference between IB Prep and non-IB Prep is that students that wish to partake in the IB program are required to take Honors classes in their core subjects as well as the IB Essentials class. IB Prep was designed to acclimate students to the rigor of the IB Diploma Programme. Additionally, all IB classes are taught by IB trained and certified teachers.
