Online International Baccalaureate courses will be available to North Hills High School students next year.

IB classes are rigorous two-year courses of study that integrate global perspectives and are provided through International Baccalaureate, a foundation based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Rising North Hills juniors will be able to enroll in philosophy, business management, “Information Technology in a Global Society” and higher-level mathematics through the program, though they will not be eligible for an IB diploma. About 24 of the high school's 1,427 students would be eligible to take the courses. The classes - to be paid for by the district - cost $1,300 per year.

The board approved the courses in an 8-0 vote on Thursday. Board member Jeff Meyer was not in attendance.
