Spokane's First International Baccalaureate World School
Saint George’s School will prepare your student for college and for life. From Kindergarten through 12th Grade, we reinforce strong values and provide academic challenges.
On December 17, 2013, Saint George's was authorized as an official International Baccalaureate World School -- the first one in the Spokane area. We offer the IB Diploma Programme for 11th and 12th grade students, with the first students earning their IB Diploma in May 2016.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy -- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Saint George's believes best prepares your student for success in college and careers. The IB also fits well with Saint George's mission of Inspiring scholars, athletes, and artists to serve and lead others!
