What GHS Alumni say about college readiness and IB


It is important to note that many colleges are making the distinction between taking IB courses and completing the IB Diploma Programme and/or earning an IB Diploma.

The entire program is valued much greater than the individual courses (although they are regarded as rigorous and academically challenging).  There is an understanding that the completion of the core components (TOK, EE, and CAS) in particular are an indicator for success in college.
