CHS an Official IB World School
It's official! Coppell High School is now an authorized IB World School. "We are excited about the official authorization; the IB diploma program is going to be a truly unique opportunity for CHS students,"says IB Coordinator Jeb Puryear. "It will offer students a rigorous interdisciplinary education that infuses critical thinking, research skills, and the writing process across the curriculum, differing from other educational pathways."
Planning and preparation is continuing for IB classes, which will start this fall. All IB teachers are being sent to specified training and, all day training will be held to help teachers weave the Theory of Knowledge into their classrooms. Teachers and curriculum directors are also working to align the IB curriculum with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The Extended Essay timeline and framework of the 150 Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) hours are also being developed.
