Frisco ISD is currently working through the authorization process to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) at Frisco High School. The Diploma Programme consists of multiple academically-challenging courses designed to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills. The mission of IB is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Members of the Class of 2023, or students who entered the cohort as ninth graders during the 2019-20 school year, will take the first IB courses at Frisco High School during the 2021-22 school year, if Frisco ISD’s authorization is approved.

All interested Frisco ISD high school students, starting with the Class of 2023 and beyond, will be eligible to seek admission into the Diploma Programme at Frisco High School. Students and parents will be responsible for providing their own transportation to and from FHS.
Each November, eighth graders from across Frisco ISD will be invited to submit a commitment form to express interest in participating in the IB Diploma Programme at FHS. Students will be randomly selected for enrollment using a lottery process based on the number of seats available.
Students who accept admission will become Frisco High School students beginning their 9th grade year with the IB courses for the Diploma Programme starting in their 11th grade year. Diploma Programme students would be encouraged to take Advanced Placement (AP) and other rigorous coursework during their freshman and sophomore years. Learn More About Admissions
