Outstanding IB Results for Class of 2017

The International Baccalaureate Organization has awarded 32 diplomas to Hillsboro High School graduates from the class of 2017. This is a 25 percent improvement from last year and represents the continuation of a consistent and steady increase seen at Hillsboro over the past three years. In order to achieve the full diploma, students must earn an average score of 4 (on a scale of 1 to 7) on the assessments that they take in the six subject areas of English, World Language, Mathematics, Science, History, and the Arts. Also, they complete a cross-curricular philosophy course called Theory of Knowledge, write a 4,000-word essay on the topic of their choice, and submit a portfolio of what they’ve learned through completing 18 months of self-selected experiences in the Creativity, Activity, and Service component.

In addition to the students who earned the diploma, 29 students completed the requirements for the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Certificate Programme, representing a 17% improvement over last year. Outside of the students who earned the IB Diploma and Certificate, a total of 132 certificates were issued in individual subject levels, a 9% increase from 2015–16.

Two students earned a very difficult score of 7 on two assessments: Joe Henry, History of the Americas, and Jacob Parks, Business Management. Their names, along with the names of the students who earned the diploma, will be displayed on plaques on the Hillsboro Honor Wall.

Congratulations to the International Baccalaureate Diploma recipients of the 2016–2017 school year!
