Welcome Juniors! IB NEWSLETTER | @IB_Allen Welcome juniors! On behalf of the IB community here at Allen, the IB Newsletter team is happy to welcome you into our amazing program! This program is one of the most beneficial experiences in high school, that will not only change how you approach your education and your school work, but help you immerse yourself into the world around you. Heres just a glimpse of what IB life is like You will immediately find yourself surrounded with people concerned more about life in general, rather than GPA and rank. You will find that if you were silent about your educational struggles and felt that no one else could relate to how much you work, then you were never really alone. From our collective personal experience, we could all agree that in an AP environment, we felt like it was a strict competition with our peers to get the highest score and do better than everyone elsethat our success depended strictly on the numbers we got back on our assignments. And we found it hard to connect with people who were only interested in getting the best scores. But since joining IB, we know now that learning is not memorization; learning is being introduced a concept and being taught to understand how it applies to other subjects, and even the world. The teachers here in IB( the ones that we are so privileged to have) care just as much about your success as you do, and they are incredibly passionate about what they teach and how they teach it. We hope that this first impression of IB inspires you to continue on your path to graduating with that IB diploma in hand. We love the community that we are a part of and how it makes us love coming to school everyday. We know everyone in our classes, and we can count them among our closest friends since becoming juniors. We have become better people, better citizens, and more globally minded individuals. IB is an experience, one we wish to share with you, and an experience we hope that you continue to share after we have graduated. We hope that you end up falling in love with this program just as much as we have, and we hope that it invigorates a change in your life for the better. -Tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.And one fine morning...So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.-Nick Carraway Work Cited: -Fitzgerald, F.
