Diploma Programme


***Due to COVID-19 the IB Diploma Programme at Hoover High School has ended. 

Below is the official release from Des Moines Public Schools:

Beginning in the fall of 2021, Hoover High School will no longer offer the IB Diploma Programme as part of the International Baccalaureate pathway. This is largely due to low enrollment in the program as well as a lack of financial and human resources needed to successfully implement and support this initiative. While we saw tremendous potential in the IB Diploma Programme, difficult financial times require difficult decisions. The program was temporarily suspended for the current 20-21 school year, and those students directly impacted have had their plans revised. DMPS will continue to offer both the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) to students and families enrolled at Hoover and Meredith along with our other IB schools throughout Des Moines.
