The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is planning to introduce a new International Baccalaureate (IB) program at Merivale High School beginning in the Fall of 2019. This would be the second IB program in the district; there is currently an IB program at Colonel By Secondary School.
In order to best serve the community, we would like your thoughts about some of the implementation issues for the new program. Specifically, decisions need to be made about three things:
- Attendance boundaries for the two IB programs;
- Semestering versus non-semestering at Merivale High School; and
- School start time at Merivale High School.
We have prepared some background information on each of these issues, which you can access from the links below. We will be holding two open houses where these issues will be discussed in more detail. We are also collecting feedback though our online discussion forum. We encourage you to learn more and share your thoughts with us. The consultation period runs until May 1, 2018.
You may choose to attend the open house. Please register for below:

Merivale High School’s school council is pleased to share notice of an upcoming presentation focusing on the post-secondary options facing all students in the 21st century. Gone are the days of university vs. college vs. co-op/apprentices. Nowadays, post-graduate students can construct their own pathways to success through combined academic options. Please refer to the flyer for the details.
We hope you will join us for this insightful topic. Students are very welcome to attend as well.
