The Journey of an International Baccalaureate Student

journey of an IB student

In their words . . .

The following comments from students, parents and teachers highlight the praise and success stories of the Destinations Programme:

“I like the work! It’s different and it’s sometimes hard. It makes me think more than I had to, to make me understand, especially
when the assignments ask us to solve a real world problem.”
  – Destinations student

“I just wanted to pass on how impressed I have been with the programming the teachers have been providing. My son is in the grade eight class. He has been very enthusiastic about the projects he has been assigned and I have been very impressed at the detailed rubrics and prompt feedback the students have received. These two teachers are clearly putting a lot of work into this new program and it shows.”
  – Destinations parent

“You get to participate more in the learning process. It’s more involved. I think it’s different because we like what we’re doing.”
  – IB graduate

“One of the greatest aspects of this programme is that students get the opportunity to explore issues with other students and teachers instead of being “taught” and told to remember.”
  – IB teacher

“ The IB programme provided flexibility for a student who is a divergent thinker.”
  – Parent
