Fairview Middle IB Preparatory Magnet Program
The International Baccalaureate Preparatory (IB Prep) Magnet Program is an advanced program of study designed to accelerate the educational experience of students in all curriculum areas while promoting a worldview of global citizenship. Students in IB Prep may earn up to eight high school credits, including Algebra and Geometry Honors, Physical Science and Biology Honors, Honors Spanish and French, Chinese, and Journalism. Our program is designed to prepare students for the IB program or any other Advanced Placement program. The accelerated curriculum is balanced with promoting a well- rounded education, with students involved in programs such as jazz and symphonic band, orchestra, chorus, and drama, as well as athletics and community service.IB Prep students enjoy a family atmosphere, with students at each grade level sharing a core team of teachers who work and plan together to establish cross-curricular themes and units. The program is led by a magnet administrator who places high importance on strong home- school communication. Morning and afternoon transportation is provided for all IB Prep Magnet students from any home in Leon County.
Students in IB Prep are academically competitive at the state and national levels. Fairview is home to the nine-time MATHCOUNTS Florida State Champions, multiple 1st place trophies from our Mu Alpha Theta teams, and five 1st place medals at the Science Olympiad Regional Competition.
