Both grades and course level impact GPA and Class Rank. 4

31 AP Credit Policy Search Search: AP Credit Policy - CollegeBoard Example: Texas Tech University

32 Mr. Wurst AP Human Geo slide(s) here

33 Mr. Jeremy Day

34 International Baccalaureate (IB) It is an international, cross-curriculum program that aims to help students become independent critical thinkers and scholars. It is one of the best college preparatory programs in the world. Junior s and Senior s only!

35 IB Learner Profile Inquirers Knowledgeable Thinkers Communicators Principled Open-Minded Caring Risk-takers Balanced Reflective

36 Misconceptions about IB Myth-You can t participate in extracurricular activities and do the Full Diploma Programme. Fact-Majority of students that do the Diploma Programme are involved in a sport, band, theatre, ect Myth-It is for only the really smart kids! Fact-IB rewards students that will put in effort! It is an open enrollment program! Myth-I will have no life as an IB student! Fact-IB is challenging no doubt! It is manageable!

37 Is IB right for you? Those highly motivated and self-driven Those willing to think critically Those willing to explore different ideas and cultures Those that like to be challenged Those not afraid to think outside of the box

38 University Recognition of the IB Diploma Texas Public Universities will award a diploma graduate a minimum of 24 hours of credit (this is state law). If you include room and board, the IB Diploma will save you around $17,582*. *($21,978/30hrs=$732 per hour*24hrs=$17,582). *This number will vary depending on the university chosen This does not include any AP credit the student may receive.
