IB and college
According to The IB Diploma Graduate Destination Survey 2011:
- "The average acceptance rate of IB students in university/college is 22 percentage points higher than the average acceptance rate of the total population" (page 22)
- "The acceptance rate of IB students into Ivy League institutions (Princeton, Yale, Brown, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, University of Pennsylvania) is between 3 and 13 percentage points higher compared to the total population acceptance rate" (page 22).
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR FIRST IB GRADUATES
The results from the May 2012 International Baccalaureate tests are in. IB Diploma and IB Certificate students took 161 tests and had a pass rate of 80%. Of our first class of 26 IB Diploma candidates, 18 were awarded the full diploma. Many of these students will now enter college as sophomores thanks to the hard work they have done these last two years. Congratulations to all of the IB Diploma and Certificate students, to the teachers who guided this inaugural class, and particularly to Mr. Joe Robinson, our first IB Director and founder.
