Humble High School International Baccalaureate Graduates Honored
of the Humble High School Class of 2016 were recognized at the August Board of
Trustees Meeting for earning the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB)
diploma. To earn the IB diploma, these students were required to meet demanding
academic standards, including: passing all six of the required IB exams;
completing four years of a foreign language; completing 150 hours of community
service; and numerous writing assignments. One of the writing assignments is a
4,000-word paper completed on the students’ time, outside of school. These
students chose to participate in the most rigorous academic curriculum offered
in Humble ISD.
IB Diploma Programme enjoys a high level of respect and recognition among the
world’s higher education institutions. For students, success in the IB often
results in advanced standing, course credit, scholarships, and other admissions
related benefits at many universities.
