The Seattle Public School District and Rainier Beach High School are exploring the possibility of incorporating the International Baccalaureate (IB) program into the school’s curriculum.

As part of this exploration, a series of mini-workshops will be held to look into one component or concept of the IB at a time to build our knowledge. The first one will be on Tuesday, April 12 at Rainier Beach High School. Future dates are to be determined.

The workshops will be free and open to all. In other words, you are volunteering your time to come and you are welcome to invite your friends.

Each workshop will be independent from of another and last about one hour. The first workshop will be held twice on April 12.


  • Event: IB mini-workshop
  • Date: Tuesday, April 12
  • Time: 3:00 – 4:00 pm (Session 1)
    4:00 – 5:00 pm (Session 2, same as Session 1)
  • Location: Rainier Beach High School Library

The first topic will be the IB learner profile.

Future topics will likely include:

  • International-mindedness
  • Concurrency of learning
  • Criterion referenced assessment
  • Theory of Knowledge
  • Extended Essay
  • Creativity, Action Service

The meetings will require active participation (talking, writing, reflecting). Individuals can stay for one or both sessions or parts of both as their time allows.
