The IB Programme at Sumner High School
At Sumner High School, we offer the full IB Diploma Programme.  Proper course planning is important for students intending to pursue a partial or full IB course schedule in the 11th- and 12th-grade years. 
For personalized planning, please see your guidance counselor or make an appointment to meet with me.  Just sign up outside of my office.

IB Full-Diploma Candidates Advisory Notes
Welcome to the Full-IB advisory!  All students pursuing the full diploma are placed in the full-diploma advisory.  Ms. Swigart is the advisor of record for juniors and Mrs. Peters is the advisor of record for seniors. Mr. Slater and Mrs. Gosselin are also advisors for our cohort. We do this to support students with the very rigorous programme requirements including TOK, CAS and the Extended Essay.
