Merivale High School – International Baccalaureate World School Authorization

Following a two year process that engaged students, staff, families and the community, the OCDSB is proud to announce Merivale High School’s authorization as an IB World School for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

In the first year of implementation, which began in September 2019, all Grade 9 students shifted to a full-year timetable. A phased in approach of non-semestering will continue with Grade 10 becoming non-semestered in 2020-2021, and Grades 11 and 12 becoming non-semestered in 2021-2022. Information sessions for entry in 2020 will take place in November 2019.

The start time for the school remains the same (8:10 am for secondary students), and therefore students will continue to be eligible for transportation, including yellow bus, as determined by OSTA.

The goal of this plan is to ensure students continue to have strong academic experiences, in addition to the growth in the co-curricular and extra-curricular offerings as the student population expands.

Merivale High School joins Colonel By Secondary School as the only other OCDSB school offering this specialized learning experience.
