Our students are increasingly applying to US and International universities. The IB is well-understood and respected by the top International universities. See below for some of the quotes:
"IB is well known to us for excellent preparation. Success in an IB programme correlates well with success at Harvard. We are always pleased to see the credentials of the IB Diploma Programme on the transcript."
Marilyn McGrath Lewis Director of Admissions
"McGill has enthusiastically recruited IB students for over two decades. Even today, when reviewing an application from an IB Diploma candidate . . . our admissions officers can be assured of the candidate’s strong and broad-based academic preparation. We have seen that IB students embrace the rigorous academic challenges of university life and perform well in their McGill programmes. As a member of the College and University Recognition Taskforce, I can attest to the respected position of the IB diploma at prestigious universities throughout North America."
Kim Bartlett Director of Admissions
McGill University, Québec
"For many years I have been an IB fan. It has taken seriously more of the issues in the world of today (and tomorrow), and has been less influenced by fads, and the test-taking obsessions of ministers of education, than any organization its size. The development of separate programmes for the early and middle years is also meritorious and I applaud the inclusion of the arts as subjects worthy of serious study. The theory of knowledge course is consonant with the importance today of metacognitive capacities and the need for synthesizing thinking that integrates separate disciplines and rival perspectives."
Howard Gardner Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education
Harvard Graduate School of Education
"My eyes light up when I see ‘International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme’ on a transcript. Students who apply to Michigan State University with IB credentials are assumed to be mature, curious, and creative. They have proven to be successful in a rigorous program that is both broad and deep in its content and intellectual challenge. On campus, IB graduates move with ease in a diverse and global university that demands intercultural skill and adaptability."
Pamela Horne, Assistant to the Provost for Enrollment and Director of Admissions
Michigan State University
"One of the advantages of an IB curriculum is its structure and quality. It is a coordinated program, well-established, well-known and well-respected. We know the quality of IB courses, and we think the IB curriculum is terrific."
Christoph Guttentag Director of Undergraduate Admission
