DawnM Posted June 26, 2016 Share Posted June 26, 2016 (edited) My son will be an 11th grader next year. He is going to switch from the charter school to our local PS. In talking to the counselor, she said he should go into the IB program. I honestly don't know much about it. She was pushing it hard so didn't seem willing to explain why that was so much better and what the alternative would be. My neighbor has said DON'T DO IT! She told me that it is a lot of busy work, not more challenging academically to just taking honors and AP classes, and that colleges don't really recognize it as anything special, so taking honors and AP would be better, and allow him time to be a kid. What do you know about and IB program? I mean, I can google and read WHAT it is, but I don't really know what it means......what do they DO that is so different than the regular ed program? Thanks, Dawn Edited June 26, 2016 by DawnM 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
