• International Baccalaureate

    "IB programmes incorporate quality practice from national and international research and the IB global community. They encourage students to be internationally-minded, within a complex and hyper-connected world." The IB Diploma and Career-Related Programs are rigorous, internationally recognized college-preparatory pathways for highly motivated students.


  • The Central High School International Baccalaureate Diploma and Career-Related Programs will host an information night for all interested 8th grade Springfield Public Schools students and their families on Thursday, October 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the Central High School Auditorium.  Any SPS student who wishes to participate in either program pathway should apply for admission by December 1 of the 8th grade year.  The application will be available beginning in late October through the CHS website and should be completed by the student.  The student will receive notification of admission status in early December.  Late applications will be considered on a space available basis. 

    In addition to the student completing the application, parents or guardians of students living outside of the Central High School attendance area must apply for a transitional transfer to Central High School.  The district transitional transfer request must be made through the SPS website between 7:30 a.m. on Friday, November 1 and 4:30 p.m. on Monday, December 2, 2019.  No late submissions will be accepted.  If a transfer is approved, the student may attend Central High School regardless of IB Program acceptance.
