- Fill out the form linked here. This gives our IB coordinator the chance to input students' data early so that when students sit down to finalize registration, a lot of the nuts and bolts have already been taken care of.
- Review the IB Exam Calendar, linked here. The dates of IB exams are set world wide and we cannot make changes. If there's an important event happening in May, it's better to know about conflicts before students are registered. IB Exams do not conflict with graduation.
- Meet with Ms. Henry, our IB Coordinator. She'll make sure you've selected the correct exams and give you paperwork to be signed off on by parents/guardians.
- Make payment and return registration form from Ms. Henry. Exams are $125 each and can be paid via SchoolCash, a check made out to Palmer High, or cash.
