It was a long process with much anticipation on our end, but THINK Global School is proud to announce that it has been approved as an IB World school, and will begin offering IB level classes during the 2012-2013 school year. Receiving this authorization is a huge validation of our educational efforts, as all currently enrolled students will have the chance to graduate with an IB diploma in their hand, starting with our current class of tenth graders in 2014.
The coursework at THINK Global School will continue to be academically challenging as the program is implemented further, but the end goal is apparent: have our students graduate and attend the university of their liking in a field that they are deeply passionate about. The IB provides us with a very real opportunity to do so, as quoted by Marlyn McGrath Lewis, Director of Admissions at Harvard:
IB is well known to us for excellent preparations. 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.
Finally, a big congratulatory pat on the back goes out to all the faculty and staff members who helped bring this to fruition, especially Dr. Sally Booth, our Director of Curriculum. Sally spearheaded the project from start to finish, and deserves a ton of praise for helping turn this into reality.
