WELCOME TO THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM
AT RICHWOODS HIGH SCHOOL!
This is my 25th year in education at Peoria Public Schools. I have spent the last 13 years in the IB program teaching IB History and being IB Coordinator at Richwoods. I love the IB program and I'm immensely proud of the quality of education we provide the students and families of Peoria Public Schools. It is truly second to none.
Our goal is for students in the IB program to achieve a balanced, well-rounded education that adheres to the highest academic standards anywhere in the world. Equally important, our curriculum is heavily focused on civic engagement and leadership roles throughout our school and community.
The IB program aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who will help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. We encourage students to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand and appreciate diversity. A growth mindset and willingness to listen to other perspectives is instilled as an essential part of the learning process.
The IB program is much more than a college-level academic curriculum. We focus heavily on critical thinking skills, writing, discussion, debate, research, collaboration, leadership, and community volunteerism.
