Druid Hills High School offers both the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Program.
The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring,knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
Druid Hills High School seeks to make AP courses available to all well-qualified students with the goal of all college-bound student taking at least one AP course before graduation. Part of the fulfillment and the culmination of that course is the Advanced Placement exam. It is required that all students in an AP course take the AP exam in May. Students in AP courses are held to a high level of academic expectations. Because AP courses are at the college level, appropriate student behavior and maturity are required.
We are ranked in the top 500 of America’s Best High Schools according to Newsweek magazine.
