We adhere to the vision that every student who graduates from the IB Diploma Program at Bartow High School is prepared for university and career opportunities. We believe our students are empowered to thrive in a global society by experiencing a relevant learning environment that inspires critical thinking, mindfulness, problem-solving, and innovation. Demands are high and students must be committed to consistently devote time and energy to their studies. 

The IB program expects students to excel to their maximum potential academically, socially, and in extra-curricular activities. Due to the rigor of the program, and out-of-school requirements, participation in the IB program is a family commitment. Students are expected to enter the program with their personal goal of success.
