INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMME
It’s been called the ‘Cadillac’ of education programs. The International Baccalaureate is a globally recognized program offering rigorous pre-university courses, leading to exams that meet the needs of highly motivated students.
McAllen ISD became the first district in the Valley to feature IB in 2001. The Diploma Programme for juniors and seniors enjoys one of the highest success rates in the world – 98.4 percent over nine years. Students who carry the IB Diploma are assured of at least 24 credit hours at any state university in Texas. Visit the Lamar Academy IB web page, click here.
McAllen ISD also features the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for grades 6-10 and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students in elementary school. The district is in the midst of an expansion phase that will see every campus become an IB world school by 2014.
