To IB or Not to IB: International Baccalaureate Students Tell All
My old high school was best known in our district for two things: its sport teams and its International Baccalaureate program. As my klutzy nature kept me from excelling at any sport other than badminton (Asian heritage for the win!), it was the IB Diploma Program that convinced me to enroll at Montgomery High School. I wanted to take the most advanced courses possible and build up my college application marketability, so it sounded like IB was the way to go. Founded nearly 50 years ago, the IB organization is a nonprofit institution that offers an international education to students at over 3,500 IB World schools in 145 countries; it also offers a Middle Years Program for students from 11 to 16 years old, and even a Primary Years Program for students from 3 to 12 years old, building up to the Diploma Program for students from 16 to 19 years old.
