​PMSS IB Applications

Please be advised that as a School District 43 programme of choice, for grade 9, priority is given first to Canadian and Permanent Resident students living in SD 43, then to those living outside SD 43, and then to international students.

Each year we will have a small number of placements available for grade 10 or grade 11 students. The procedure for these students is the same as for grade 9 applicants.

To recover the additional costs of the programme, PMSS will charge a flat fee each year in grade 9 and 10. In grades 11 and 12, we will charge the exam registration and exam fees from IBO.

Step 1:

Determine that the IB Programme is the best choice to meet your secondary school educational needs. There are a wide variety of excellent programmes available to all students of School District 43.

Step 2:

Attend one of the Parent/Student Information Meetings held at PMSS. Dates for 2020 are Tuesday, January 7 or Thursday, January 9 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Large Gym.

If unable to attend or if you have any questions, contact Mr. Sean Lenihan, the I.B. Coordinator, at the school for information. 

Step 3:

Complete the online registration and application forms. These will be open from January 8th until 9:00 a.m. on January 17th, 2020. Please check back to this website on January 8th for details.

Step 4:

Attend the testing session Saturday January 18, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00pm. at PMSS. Only applicants who submit applications by the Jan 17 deadline will be permitted to participate in the testing session.

Candidates will be assessed on their abilities in mathematics, and reading and writing in English. They will also be assessed on their interactive problem solving abilities. These assessments are generic tests, not dependent upon any particular curriculum or grade level; we do not provide any preparation or pre-study materials as these are unnecessary.

Step 5:

All applicants will be contacted as to the success of their applications by email on January 31 at or shortly after 4 pm.

Step 6:

Successful applicants will return their acceptance of the offer by email to PMSS by February 7, 2020. 

Step 7:

All successful applicants will attend an IB Registration evening on Thursday, February 13, 2020 from 7-8 pm.
