Students applying to the Academy of International Baccalaureate at Woodrow Wilson High School should attend an informational session at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 20 or 25, in the school auditorium.

Applications are accepted districtwide and also from out-of-district, and at present no tuition is charged. Application forms are available online.

Return the form to Dr. Kathy Scherler, IB coordinator at Woodrow, by post at 100 South Glasgow Drive, 75214. Contact Scherler, (972) 502-4400, with questions.  All applications must be received by Feb. 15.

Woodrow is one of four candidates in Texas to be designated a full IB World School offering the IB Diploma Programme. Students earning the diploma are given 24 hours of college credit in Texas and at many other universities all over the world.

Acceptance rates into prestigious colleges are higher for those earning the degree. Formal approval of Woodrow’s candidacy is expected soon after a successful site visit to the school by the IBO committee last November.

More than 100 freshmen now are enrolled in Pre-IB, which is being rolled out over a four-year period along with three other college preparatory academies — Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, or STEM; Performing Arts; and Business, Finance, and Entrepreneurship.

The school is getting a $14 million and a 40,000-square-foot new wing to house the STEM and Performing Arts academies.

Thanks to Kyle Rains for providing the words and pictures.
