Fairview Honors Program

CONGRATS! 58 GRADUATED SENIORS EARN THE IB DIPLOMA
During the entire month of May, 346 Fairview students engaged in a series of college level, international examinations. Some students were simply taking exams for the experience, and the hope of getting college credit for good scores, while others were attempting to earn the more difficult to obtain International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Fifty-eight diploma candidates completed all program requirements and turned in solid exam performances to outperform their international counterparts, and ultimately earned the degree. This represents one of the very best passing rates of all IB schools internationally.
The Washington Post has once again recognized Fairview in their annual survey of America’s Most Challenging High Schools. Fairview is the only IB school in Colorado to receive distinction every year since the inception of the report, started by Jay Matthews in 1999. The system ranks schools according to an index formula, which is a ratio of the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year.
