The idea of an International Baccalaureate---that is of an international university entrance examination that could be taken and recognized in any country---was first conceived by a group of educators in the International School of Geneva in conjunction with other international schools in Wales, New York, Teheran, Copenhagen, Paris, Frankfort, and Montevideo. Among the concerns of the founders was the ever increasing emphasis on education as the mere delivery of information, the related fragmentation of knowledge, and the crowding out of aesthetic and creative experience.

Advanced Placement courses are rigorous college-level courses that offer students major benefits and advantages, primarily in the potential for college credit upon successful completion of the AP Exam, administered in May of each year.

Advanced Placement courses also offers weighting double that of an honors or Pre-IB course (0.04 per Semester / 0.08 per Year). This weighting is equal to that of a junior or senior level International Baccalaureate (IB) courses or Dual Enrollment college courses.

Advanced Placement courses also offer a college-level work load and thus serve as an excellent preparation for college. Most colleges look highly upon students electing to take AP courses, as these students are prepared in advance for a college-level work load in addition to possessing advanced study, reasoning and thinking skills. These courses also tend to improve a student's time-management skills.

Affiliated Clubs: Future Educators of America (FEA), National Career and Technical Honor Society

Future Signers of America was formed by a group of interested American Sign Language students in 1998. Although the official name is F.S.A, the club decided, in August of 2013, to be known as the ASL club. The purpose of the club is to educate the people interested in the fields pertaining to the language along with Deaf culture.

The club is open to anybody; being able to sign is not a requirement. Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month and the dues are $10.00

The club always performs at the Deaf Service Center’s Sing and Sign (the annual fundraiser). We have gone to Immersion workshops (where students sign the whole time), Deaf Awareness Days, storytelling workshops in which Deaf persons act or perform the story and Deaf Expos.

The club has given a monetary scholarship to a deserving elementary student in the Hearing Impaired program during the first semester, at which we also perform a song. During the second semester, FSA gives a small scholarship to a deserving student in the same program at Fort Myers Middle Academy.
