Welcome to the Palm Harbor University High School International
Baccalaureate Program website! Your interest in our program has led you to our website which we hope does two things:
- First, it answers some of the general questions you have about
the IB program and how we implement the IB at Palm Harbor;
- Second, we hope that the information that you glean here will
lead you to contact us to further explore your educational opportunities with us.
We also encourage our current students to visit this website regularly
to connect to the links that our teachers have created to assist students in following their course syllabi.
The IB Program at Palm Harbor University High School continues
to be among the leading programs in the world based upon the number of IB diplomas earned by our seniors. In the
class of 2011, 93% earned the IB diploma at PHUHS. Our graduates have consistently been ranked among the best in
North America for IB Programs with greater than 60 diploma candidates.
Each year our graduates are accepted to the most competitive and prestigious colleges, universities, and military academies
in the United States and abroad; however, most will pursue their undergraduate degrees in-state, taking advantage of the Florida
Bright Futures Scholarship Program.
Palm Harbor University High School has an enrollment of approximately
2,600 students, and the IB Program, which has 540 students, operates as a school within a school. The IB students share
elective classes with their peers in the traditional program and the Center for Wellness and Medical Professions, as well
as participate in the athletic and varied extracurricular activities offered to all the PHUHS students. The academics, however,
are taught exclusively in the Pre-Diploma classes for grades 9 and 10, and then in the IB Program for grades 11 and 12.
We hope that you find our website informative and up-to-date. Please
feel free to contact either Dr. Corace or me for more information about the IB Program at Palm Harbor University
