Any incoming 9th grader wishing to register as IB Prep must meet the three requirements below. IB Prep students will be enrolled in courses during their 9th and 10th grade years that will move them along course pathways that lead to IB diploma courses in their 11th and 12th grade years.


Requirements for incoming 9th grade students:

  • Check with http://residence.dbhsib.org to verify that they are assigned to DBHS
  • Maintain a 3.00 GPA in the core academic courses in the 8th grade
  • Complete Geometry with a grade of A or B prior to August of 10th grade




Which High School will you attend? (Remember to check using http://residence.dbhsib.org


  • If you live in the DBHS residence area you will attend DBHS. Please register to be IB Prep at DBHS using the form in the first section of this page. Make sure you follow the posted deadlines.
  • If you live in the Walnut High School residence area, you will attend WHS. Please follow the 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 posted deadlines to register for the Diamond Bar High School IB Prep program or the Walnut High School program. Once the district assigns you to a high school, you can easily transfer your prep status between DBHS and WHS by contacting the IB coordinator at either school.
    • IMPORTANT: The inter-district transfer permit is COMPLETELY SEPARATE from our IB Prep registration process. Please adhere to the IB Prep deadlines and concurrently apply for the transfer.


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.
