The online application for current 8th graders seeking admission to CHS IB is available October 1, 2016 at the following address: https://magnet.cobbk12.org
Students should complete and submit their online application for the CHS IB magnet program. All instructions are listed in the portal. You will need to have a valid email address that you check frequently because all instructions and communications will be done via email. Remember that you will be submitting four teacher recommendations, and you must have your teachers’ names/email addresses for that part of the application. Teachers will receive the notice about recommendations once you submit the application, and they have until mid-January to submit their references.
Private/home school students are able to complete the online application as well. In addition to the application, we will need you to submit an official academic transcript from 7th and 8th grade that includes grades and standardized test scores. This information should be submitted in December/January so that we have all the information to make informed admissions decisions in February.
All applications must be submitted by the end of the day on December 1, 2016; anything entered into the portal after that date cannot be accepted. Please be sure to click the SUBMIT button on the last page to be sure your information is entered completely. Email Dan Penick, the IB Program Coordinator, or call CHS IB at 678-842-6856 if you have any questions or problems with the application.
The Open House for all students and families interested in the IB Diploma Program will be held on THURSDAY, October 20, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the Livingston Auditorium at Campbell High School. If you were unable to attend the Open House event, please contact the IB Coordinator, Dan Penick, to make alternate arrangements for a visit to the school in November.
Interested students and families can also access the IB Information and Support page on Facebook to ask questions about the program, Campbell High School, and the application process. Our current students, parents, and faculty members are happy to respond to your inquiries about the IB Program, the application process, magnet school choices, and Campbell High School.
Our Annual IB Potluck Dinner will be held Thursday, November 17th from 6:30 – 8:00 PM in the CHS cafeteria. It’s a great way for faculty, students, and parents to share some fantastic food in a fun, social environment.
Download the potluck-flyer-fall-2016 2016 to learn specifics about the menu–each grade level is assigned particular items to bring. Our hope is that each family will bring a dish that is part of their culture or heritage so that we can share in an authentic international experience. We will have plenty of plates, cups, napkins, and other supplies on hand. We always need volunteers to help organize and run the event, so feel free to let us know if you want to help!
One special note : please avoid using peanuts, tree nuts, or sesame seeds in any food made for the Potluck Dinner. Some students may have a severe allergy to these things, and we want to prevent any problems from happening that night. If you plan to bring/make a dish that has those ingredients, please make sure it is clearly labeled so all the students know.
Thanks to the students, parents, and teachers who participated in last night’s Open House for the IB Diploma Program at Campbell High School! With another record crowd in attendance, we had a lot of fun meeting prospective families who are interested in joining us. With the information session, classroom visits, and a chance to interact with our IB community, we hope everyone learned and felt why IB is such a special place for high school.
If you weren’t able to attend, you can view the basic information from the main presentation here: open-house-oct-2016. Not all of our slides can be published because some of the information is proprietary.
If you would like to schedule a visit/tour this fall, please contact Mr. Penick, the IB Coordinator, for more information.
Created by IB senior Karan Pol, here is a short video that helps define what IB is for the students who live it each day.
