Elementary students at Oswalt and Ybarra academies are already working on their international baccalaureate degrees.

The two Walnut schools were recently notified that they have been accepted as International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools. They now offer the Primary Years Program, an international curriculum designed for students age 3 to 12.

Students at the Rowland Unified academies may continue with the special curriculum for an international baccalaureate diploma from Nogales High School or Rowland High School, also IB World Schools.
