Is it worth the extra work? Is it a much better path? Is it too demanding?

I know Marvin Ridge graduates their first IB kids this year. I also know other schools have had the programs longer. just wondering the general thoughts of those that have watched someone live through it, wish they wouldn't have done it, or think you can be just as successful either way.

I knew several kids in the Myers Park High IB program and they loved it. They got accepted in their first choice of colleges but don't know if it was just their grades/extracurricular activities and/or the IB program.

I do however like the program and it seems challenging.

Not sure now about the program since they moved it to East Meck over here.
