Riverside Secondary School currently has 98 students taking the International Baccalaureate Preparatory Programme and another 52 taking Grade 10 classes. Now the 150 students can look forward to obtaining an I.B. diploma because Riverside has been certified as an I.B. World School. The official notification was received in late October.
An International Baccalaureate diploma is recognized around the world and identifies a student who is a critical and independent thinker with a global perspective.
The I.B. Diploma Programme for Grade 11 and 12 students will be introduced in September 2019.
Riverside is hosting an information night for students and their families interested in the diploma program or the Grade 9 & 10 preparatory program on Tuesday, November 27th.
