My son completed his IB diploma last year and I am the parent liaison for the program. The diploma students did very well getting into colleges. Discussions with the college counselors said they gave a "bump" to IB diploma students because they knew they were well-prepared for college. My son is doing very well at his Ivy along with several other kids from his HS. I encourage you to stay with the program. Reach out to your teachers for extra-help and take advantage of any tutoring your school offers. Good luck!
