Grade 8 FAQ for grade 8 students and their adults

If you have a question that has not been addressed in our FAQ, please add it here.

“The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet… IB programmes therefore provide students with opportunities for sustained inquiry into a range of local and global issues and ideas”

We encourage applications from grade 8 students who love learning, are internationally-minded, and see themselves in the IB learner attributes.

  1. You will need to upload a copy of your grade 7 report card from June (and grade 8 Interim Report, if available). NEW: We no longer require a teacher reference.
  2. If accepted, you will be asked to provide your course requests. You will still need to register for your courses in My Way. Non-WRDSB students do not enter their courses into My Way. We will do this based on the selections in your confirmation form.

Please note: We typically receive over 400 applications for 225 seats. We are unable to respond to phone or email inquiries checking to see if we have received everything or for an update on admission status.
