The International Baccalaureate Diploma and the College Search

One area of interest that parents and students alike ask about, is how the IB Diploma Program, and the IB Magnet at Richard Montgomery help students with their college and career planning.  Many wonder and worry about the impression that colleges and universities have about the IB and the IB Diploma credentials, specifically in comparison to Advanced Placement courses.   The IB Organization provide comprehensive information and material on their website, as well as a "Parent Pack" of materials specific to this topic, which is provided in the literature below.  In addition, please review the videos which include interviews with college and university admissions staff and IB graduates.  Their valuable testimonial shares why the IB is seen world-wide as one of the best college-preparatory programs available!
