The International High School of New Orleans (IHSNO) is a public, college preparatory charter school located in the Central Business District and open to all Louisiana residents. IHSNO is the first high school in New Orleans offering students the opportunity to participate in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP). The IB DP is recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities for its ability to encourage students to think broadly, beyond the boundaries of their communities, and to develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a global economy. Students in the IB DP are more likely to get university acceptance, qualify for scholarships, and succeed in their post-secondary educational endeavors. Through the IBDP, IHSNO students gain excellent breadth and depth of knowledge, excel in their academic subjects, and thrive intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
