“I was overseas for Grade 11. I was given the opportunity to do half of the IB diploma. When I returned to Horton for Grade 12, the IB was still developing so I could not continue with my diploma. Instead I opted to take 3 AP courses. If I could go back I would definitely choose IB over AP. IB forces students to develop two things to succeed: time management and work ethic. From my experience, these are the two skills which are the most important for success at the post-secondary education level. It doesn’t matter what one decides to do after high school, the IB is great foundation to jump start further education.”
