NTHS International Studies Magnet Program

What Is International Studies?

Students participate in a rigorous academic pathway of studies, with a focus on global perspectives. In a 1-to-1 technology-based environment students will study language, social studies, science, mathematics, arts, physical and health education, and design (technology) as interdisciplinary subjects. 

 Focusing on global citizenship, students in Grades 9 and 10 will participate in real-world, hands-on experiences and complete a personal research project.  During the first two years of the program, New Town High School will apply for International Baccalaureate (IB) Candidacy. 

Students in an IB school, in Grades 11 and 12, participate in either the Diploma Programme (DP) or the Careers Programme (CP).  Upon completion of the required coursework, extended essay, and service learning projects, students take a set of IB external assessments to earn an IB diploma.  An integral part of this magnet program is the acquisition of a second language.
