Comments from SHS 2004 Diploma Recipient It is unbelievable how well-prepared you are for college. As far as time management, which you must and will inevitably learn to master, and well-roundedness, no other curriculum, as thorough as the IB curriculum, can compare. Within the first month of your college experience you will realize how overly prepared you are and you will take comfort in that fact -- smile. (Continued) I want EVERYONE to have the same opportunity I did. It is definitely one of my proudest accomplishments.
