Moscow - School Report Question and Answers

Are Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses available in upper grades? If this is an IB school, is the full diploma required of all students?

Yes there is IB. There are no AP classes that I am aware of. No, the full IB is not required. - Jan 2021

A - I don't have high school students, but I've heard other mothers talking about the IB classes. - Dec 2012

A: It's IB diploma in high school. I'm not sure if they offer any AP or not as my kids weren't that age yet. Elementary is IB as well, but middle school and teh first two years of high school are not. It was fine though, in my opinion. I never missed it at all for my kids, and I taught IB, so I saw it both ways. The school has an excellent curriculum all the way through, for the most part (again, except as noted with the science in elementary school and the math in middle school), but in elementary it was IB and still had the science problem, so being IB didn't actually effect the issue. Some peopel would have prefered that they'd have either offered all IB or no IB, but I really found it was no problem at all. - Nov 2012

The school is an IB school in elementary and in 11th and 12th grades, but not in middle school. It may become IB in middle school one day too, but there are no plans for it to happen, so certainly no time soon. I don't know about AP, to be honest. I have no high school experience. - Aug 2010
