Parent/Student Information Meeting Northview, an IB World School Authorized 2011
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2007 What is the International Baccalaureate Organization? IBO is a not-for-profit foundation whose mission is to create a better world through education. The organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging education programs with rigorous assessment components. IBO programs encourage students across the world to become life long learners.
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2007 IB Statistics Size: The IBO works with 3,490 schools in 144 countries and serves over 1,064,000 students. North Carolina: There are 57 IB schools. The closest to ISS are JM Alexander, North Mecklenburg High IB, and Hickory High IB Schools.

© International Baccalaureate Organization 2007 Why is ISS providing the International Baccalaureate course of study for our students? 1.The Iredell-Statesville School District encourages all students to take the most rigorous course of study possible. --Research shows that students who succeed in IB programs tend to do better on university level work than other groups of students. --IB students earn higher average SAT scores in high school and maintain higher grade point averages at universities than non-IB students.
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2007 Why is ISS providing the International Baccalaureate course of study for our students? 2.University admissions officials are looking for three main things: Students who took the most challenging high school courses possible Students who are well-rounded and who demonstrate a commitment to leadership and service Students who demonstrate the likelihood that they will be successful post-secondary students
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2007 How do universities view IB? Recruitment – Universities are actively recruiting IB Graduates Admission – IB Graduates are considered the cream of the crop and are given preferential admissions standing at most universities Scholarships – Universities have begun to give specific scholarships to IB Graduates

If this is all you seek, you will not get maximum value from the experience. This should be the cherry on top of a very large sundae.

© International Baccalaureate Organization 2007 What will your students need in order to succeed in an IB Program?
