What is IB?
International Baccalaureate (IB) is a rigorous, internationally recognized and college-level curriculum that prepares students for success at university and beyond. 

Foss is the oldest IB World School program in WA State (established in 1982) and the only public high school in Tacoma to offer IB courses.  Foss offers the IB Middle Years Program (MYP), the IB Career-related Program (CP), and the IB Diploma Program (DP)

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Foss High School believes is important for our students. 

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.
