Any incoming 9th grader wishing to apply for our IB program must meet the three requirements below. Students who are accepted will be enrolled in courses during their 9th and 10th grade years (prep program) that will move them along course pathways that lead to IB diploma courses in their 11th and 12th grade years.
If you live in the DBHS residence area you will attend DBHS. Please apply to the DBHS IB program and follow the posted application deadlines.
If you live in the Walnut High School residence area, you will attend WHS. Please follow the application deadlines posted by WHS.
If you reside outside the boundaries of the Walnut Valley Unified School District, you may apply for an inter-district transfer permit. If your transfer is accepted, you may not be assigned to a high school until May. You should follow the REGULAR APPLICATION DEADLINES to apply to either the Diamond Bar High School IB prep program or the Walnut High School program (apply to one, not both). Follow the deadlines set by the school to which you are applying. Once the district assigns you to a high school, you can easily transfer your prep application to the correct school by contacting the IB coordinator at either school.
Attention Students of South Pointe Middle School!
Check your residency (see above). If you reside in the Walnut High School residence area, then you must apply to the WHS IB program. Your application to the IB program at Diamond Bar High School does not determine which high school you will attend; the location of your house or apartment does.
Contact Manette Idris at Walnut High School 909 594 1333 for more information on the WHS IB application process.
IMPORTANT: If you reside outside the Walnut Valley Unified School District, and you wish to enter the DBHS IB program, you must apply for an inter-district permit with your home district. This process is COMPLETELY SEPARATE from the IB application process. Please adhere to the regular IB application deadlines and concurrently apply for the transfer.
