HOWELL – Howell High Schools is now one of 17 schools in the state to become an IB World School.

Freehold Regional High School District recently announced that Howell High School is the second school in the district to receive its final authorization, alongside Freehold Township High School.

As an IB World School, Howell High School can now offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP), which is a two-year program for juniors and seniors.

“The IB DP provides students with an academically challenging and interdisciplinary course of studies, and also prepares students for a rapidly evolving, increasingly global, society. In addition to courses from six core subject groups, IB Diploma students also engage in the DP core, which prompts students to “reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research, and undertake a project that often involves community service” (IBO),” stated the district.

Students in the Class of 2021 will be the first IB students at Howell.
