Yesterday, January 17, 2023 was the open house at Glen A. Wilson High School!
The IB Program had quite the presence at the event, with a table toward the front entry of the event. IB Coordinator Ms. Rouw and Extended Essay Coordinator/TOK Teacher Ms. Casey prepared a very organized booth, with informational papers about IB coursework and the benefits of the program.
We also distributed information flyers announcing IB 8th grade parent night, which is taking place at 6:30 in the media center. There, Ms. Rouw will be answering more questions and you'll have the opportunity to hear the experiences of current IB students!
We, as students, also had the opportunity to share our own experiences with prospective students and their parents at open house to help them learn more about what we do and why IB is a great decision!
Our fellow writer and IB Diploma Junior Angelo did a commendable job representing the program and sharing the experiences he's had so far. You've still got many more memories to make, Angelo: may the next three semesters treat you well!
One of the biggest honors of the night was reuniting with two Class of 2022 IB Diploma graduates, Alex and Melissa! It was a pleasure to hear them speak about their experiences in college. Alex reports that his professors have been using his papers as the standard to strive for, and Melissa has started university with already 24 credits!
Having the opportunity to work with these team of my IB classmates was incredible! I've learned so much about being a community and the good that a program such as IB can do!
