Welcome to North Woods International School

International Baccalaureate World School

In March of 2021, North Woods International became an authorized International Baccalaureate World School. This great accomplishment took three years to achieve. North Woods at this time is the only IB World School on the western side of Wisconsin. Special thanks to our prior Principal, Mrs. Brauer for pursuing IB and starting this program! Another thanks to Trust Point for their support of our IB mission, and finally, a thank you to all the teachers for their continuous effort and collaboration to make this dream a reality.
