For PA students in grades 11 and 12, we offer the opportunity to enroll in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. This rigorous academic curriculum is for the curious, highly organized student who loves learning.
IB is strongly motivated by their mission to create a better world through education. As a result, students who participate are encouraged to, in the words of IB, "promote intercultural understanding and respect, not as an alternative to a sense of cultural and national identity, but as an essential part of life in the 21st Century."
To learn more about IB, its vision, mission and strategy, visit www.ibo.org.
IB gave me the opportunity to challenge myself to become a deeper thinker - one who can look beyond the obvious and find a more comprehensive approach. I have also learned to manage time and alleviate stress more efficiently which is helpful for post-secondary education.
