Rowland IB Diploma Graduates


“I believe that participating in the IB program gave me a great advantage in both the college application process and, once I enrolled at Harvard, in adapting to the college curriculum. HARVARD

Also, there are a lot of essays so you can tell your IB kids that writing really is great practice for college. Time management skills developed from IB is really helpful, especially when midterm exams and essay due dates are crammed into two weeks. Thanks for preparing me for college and life post-IB! UCSD

“The skills I've acquired have become extremely valuable to me. College reading assignments are insane. I'm assigned almost three hundred pages a week, and I don't even know how I'm surviving with all this reading. Thankfully IB taught me how to read properly. AMHERST

"I think the aspect of IB that helped me the most was the writing practice. I chose to take IB seriously and it was one of those things that indirectly helped me in the long run. Now, I have absolutely no problems with managing my time." UCLA

“I think the only advice I have is that while they might not see the benefit of taking IB right now, the benefits will come later. College papers are long, and I'm really glad I already had the experience of writing internal assessments and the extended essay. PRINCETON
