Carson Graham Secondary
North Vancouver School District
International Baccalaureate


North Vancouver School District 44 is proud to offer the International Baccalaureate Continuum--the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).

At Carson Graham Secondary, every student is enrolled in the Middle Years Programme (Grades 8, 9, 10), whereas in the Diploma Programme (Grades 11, 12), students apply for entrance into the two-year programme. Applications are accepted early each spring.

The aim of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is "to develop internationally-minded young people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. The programme strives to create international student ambassadors who are committed, talented, articulate and compassionate. This is accomplished through intercultural education and understanding and respect for others" (

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) build upon the inquiry-based approach to learning; both are widely-recognized courses of study that emphasize critical and creative thinking and writing skills in preparation for post-secondary studies.
