Seniors tout IB opportunities

ALBANY, N.Y. (Feb. 9, 2017) -- Albany High School seniors Jacob Citone, Juliette Pluviose-Philip and David Powell provided a presentation about the prestigious International Baccalaureate program during the monthly Albany Roundtable civic luncheon Feb. 8 at The University Club.

 

Citone (right), Pluviose-Philip (center) and Powell (left) all agreed that the rigorous program and Albany High's dedicated teachers have helped prepare them for the next step in their academic journey when they head to college in the fall.

 

Pluviose-Philip, whose brother, Wesley, also was an IB student at Albany High and is now a pre-med major at Xavier University of Louisiana, noted that the program is "not just about memorizing facts."

 

"It's about incorporating discussions and research to gain a more worldly perspective," she said.

 

The internationally recognized IB program is open to all Albany High students beginning junior year. Students can enroll in the full IB diploma program, or take individual IB classes. Albany High is one of just five high schools in the Capital Region offering the IB program.

 

Students interested in learning more about the opportunities the program offers should talk with their guidance counselors.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
