can freshmen student still apply to the IB program
Rachael Bentley-Goode
35:32
Hi Sarah,
Sara’s iPhone
35:57
hello
Rachael Bentley-Goode
37:02
I think that it would depend on the classes that you are taking as a Freshmen. There are certain classes that IB students take and need to be at a certain level for others. I think that you will need to have a conversation with Ms. Larocco.

I might have missed it by accident, but would it be like a during school program or would it be like sort of an after school program?
Janfranco Espinoza
41:55
It's during school, they provide transport
Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
42:17
Oh okay, thank you!
Janfranco Espinoza
42:37
your welcome
Sara’s iPhone
42:55

Janfranco Espinoza

55:48
if a student is a transfer student from another country and doesn’t have SOL scores what is the alternative to the SOL score
Noel
57:26
if a student wishes to graduate early, does IB allow this?
Rhianna DeGeorge
57:58
you can't graduate early through IB, it's a full highschool program
Kristine Lentz-Johnston
58:44
Hi Sara, I think Ms. Bentley-Goode is best suited to answer your question, but I do know depending on the grade level that students transfer, not as many SOLs are required.
Rachael Bentley-Goode
59:33
Sarah,
Hannah Daily
01:00:43
If a student isn’t in all honors classes are they still able to be in IB? I’m asking because I’m in 8th grade and taking regular English and math but before I moved to scps in 7th grade, I was in pre-algebra for 6th grade
Rachael Bentley-Goode
01:01:37
There are several things to consider for SOLS. That is a conversation that we will need to have at a different time. However, if you do not have test scores from another country, then you would hve to take SOLs during your high school years.
Jillian Kingman
01:01:58
as long as you have passed one year of a world language and algebra 1 by the end of the eighth grade you can qualify for IB
Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
01:02:31
Are most of the writing assessments research needed assessments?
Jasmine LaMoy
01:03:38
Yes, IB papers are mostly research based, higher level essays
Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
01:03:51
Okay thank you
JORDAN
01:05:18
do you have to take the class world language to join? or can you do something like Spanish?
Rhianna DeGeorge
01:06:01
"world language" just means a foreign language class (Spanish, French, German, Latin)
Jillian Kingman
01:06:08
when I said world language I meant spanish, german, latin or french. it doesn't have to be the world language class
Jillian Kingman
01:06:28
thank you Rhianna
JORDAN
01:06:50
ok. that makes more since, thankyou!
Jasmine LaMoy
01:08:07
the world language class is a great prerequisite before picking a language though! it'll help to get a taste of the languages offered before committing to a specific language for 5+ years
JORDAN
01:09:06
I am in Spanish currently thought
Johanne
