State schools raise profile in rankings

There are 1 comment on the The Orlando Sentinel story from May 29, 2007, titled State schools raise profile in rankings. In it, The Orlando Sentinel reports that:

More than 100 Florida high schools made Newsweek's annual list of top high schools last week, a rising number that can be attributed in part to the push to offer more-rigorous courses to more students.

It's about time that the students in the IB program were recognized! My daughter is in the program. The classes are difficult and require hours of study each night. In 11th and 12th grade the students are taking college level courses. She must master a foreign language (5 years of study), take advanced math and science courses, and maintain no lower then a B average. The fact that they choose to place the IB programs in lower scoring schools should not reflect upon the hard work and success that these students achieve. A student that is not dedicated and willing to work hard cannot make it in these courses, and I am glad to have that finally recognized.
