Berkeley International HS Curriculum

The BIHS curriculum grades 9–12 is an integrated course of study in the history, culture, literature, artistic expression and political, economic and belief systems of nations across time and across the globe. All courses from BIHS meet the California Content Standards, IB Standards and UC/CSU entrance requirements. Students take three or four courses within BIHS; they select the remainder of their courses from individual departments (World Languages, P.E., African American Studies, and Visual and Performing Arts). BIHS students may choose to earn Certificates or pursue the full IB Diploma in the 11th and 12th grades. All students take IB English and history in the 11th and 12th grades and can earn college credits through these and other courses.

Students enrolled in BIHS fulfill the learning community’s requirements within BIHS. All remaining courses needed to fulfill high school graduation and college eligibility requirements are chosen as electives from the following departments: African American Studies, Arts: Visual & Performing, Physical Education, Technology and World Languages.

* Placement into Algebra I, Honors Geometry, or higher level math based on math department assessment.
