Grads Set to Gain Momentum
Graduating from high school is a big deal. Graduating from the full International Baccculaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is remarkable.
This year, 14 STS Class of 2017 graduates received their full IB DP. These students completed the requirements of the two year IB Diploma Programme, which is a significant academic achievement. Each of these students completed seven IB DP courses which required the writing of 12 – 15 exams and the submission of a major course project in each course. In addition, each student submitted a Theory of Knowledge extended essay on a topic of their choosing, and each completed the IB “CAS” component, which requires individual development in creativity, activity and service.
The candidates’ 4,000-word extended essay topics reflect the depth of the students’ academic achievement and bodes well for the contributions they will make in their next adventures in academia and life.
