Went through the IB program grades 6 - 12 and graduated in 2010. Really prepared me for undergraduate and my subsequent doctoral program.

My son went through the IB progam for grades 6 through 12. He did not pass the IB Tests for Theatre Arts and Theory of Knowledge. At the time, neither teacher of these classes was IB certified. My son did not receive an IB Diploma only a certificate and I fault the school administration.
