SDHS Parent Connect Foundation

 Supporting IB Students and Teachers. Connecting IB Parents.

Our Mission

San Diego High School (SDHS) in downtown San Diego is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School serving students grades 9 through 12.

While the IB Diploma Programme is one of the best college-prep curriculums in the world, it is expensive and not fully funded by the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD). Additional support is needed to cover the costs of critical items, such as IB teacher training, IB testing fees, IB textbooks, IB workbooks or class supplies.

The SDHS Parent Connect Foundation raises funds to pay for these items, coordinates community-building events and volunteer opportunities for parents, and supports celebration and recognition events for students.
