Parent Question

"If my son or daughter wants to take a semester abroad during their junior or senior year is it still possible to be a full diploma candidate?" 


Unfortunately, given that IB has distinct requirements around course content and internal assessments it is very difficult to take a semester away.  But, if a student were to find an IB school, and enroll in the same courses they would be taking while at MUHS, then they could ideally go abroad for the first semester of their junior year.  This also means they would need to be working on their extended essay and CAS while away.  After the first semester there are internal assessments that must be taken and deadlines for the draft of the extended essay, it becomes extremely difficult to be away.
