Weekly Update

Update for the Week of November 12, 2018

  • If your student is working on the Personal Project, their next opportunity for some dedicated work time is after school on Thursday, November 15. Students will meet in the media center after school, and IB staff will be on hand to assist and answer questions, if needed. Encourage your student to utilize this time! An additional session will be held on Monday, November 26.
  • There is still time to register for IB tests. Both HL and SL courses can help your student earn potential college credit, which saves you money down the road. Minnesota state universities, community colleges and technical schools accept both SL and HL credits, depending on the score. If your student is on the fence about whether to test, consider this: if they test and earn an acceptable score, they’ll earn enough credits to save well over $400 (per test, depending on where they enroll for post-secondary education). It's worth their time (and money) to take the tests.
  • The blog of the week highlights how universities view IB while reviewing college applications. It contains several different videos addressing common questions as you’re going through the application process. Enjoy!
