San Diego Unified School District proudly offers two pathways, both of which form a coherent sequence of International Baccalaureate education programs.  Becoming an authorized IB School is an intensive process that typically takes two or more years and includes ongoing visits from teams from the IB Organization. SDUSD IB schools have been authorized and continue to be under evaluation on a regular basis.
