2. Why IB?

Link to District Why IB?

What do our students say?

 

“IB has made me feel prepared for college.  The emphasis on critical thinking skills and essay writing forces students to think.  The essays we write demand that we demonstrate an ability to analyze material from many perspectives.”

 

“I come from a family that never had a high school graduate and they were not able to help.  At MBHS I have a community around me to help me with my goals and now I am going to UCSD.”

 

“The IB teachers incorporate a college style and experience into the class.”

 

"After earning my IB world Diploma at Mission Bay I am starting college at UCLA as a sophomore!"

 

What do our parents say?

 

“Access to the IB Curriculum prepared my daughter for her 1st year of college.  She is confident and she understands the value of the preparation she received at Mission Bay High School.  Earning the IB Diploma her senior year was challenging and this challenge has become one of her greatest sources of pride.  She is able to connect the success she experienced in the IB program to the success that she is currently experiencing in college.”

 

"The IB Programme's college-level courses at MBHS gave my son the capability to excel in college.  He has received top-notch undergraduate grades because he is able to meet the expectations of his college professors with his ability to critically analyze information and provide in-depth analyses.  I credit the IB Programme with providing him with this capability and the capability to write effectively.
