When Hellgate High School opens its doors next fall, nearly 100 students will begin a course of study that will test their minds in a way they’ve never been tested before. Similarly, the debut of the International Baccalaureate Programme – commonly known as IB – will test the Missoula County Public Schools district’s commitment to leading education in a different direction. Hellgate will be only the second high school in the state to have adopted IB and its rigorous, two-year education, testing and assessment model. Flathead High School was the first in 2004 and began handing out IB diplomas in 2006.
