Information on J. L. Long's curriculum, which includes IB, Pre-AP and high school level classes: Programs & Activities / School Programs Long has aligned their course offerings to prepare students for the academies at Woodrow. This effort is also underway in some of the elementary feeder school programs.

Hey Lakewooder - Do you know how many graduating students were in the IB class this year? (25 completed the requirements) DM me if you want.

Thanks

I think you're comparing apples and oranges. For the PISD they say "75% of those who enroll in IB complete the program." The DISD screenshot shows a *goal* (not necessarily reality which could be higher or lower) that "15% of all high school graduates complete IB."

So I don't think we know how many enrolled in IB at Woodrow that did not complete the program. It can't be 85% dropped out since that would mean that 25/.15 = 166 students were enrolled in IB. This would be 50% of Woodrow enrollment.

Yes there were a lot of freshmen enrolled who dropped down to AP or decided to pursue IBCC instead of the Diploma Programme. IB gets very rigorous in junior and senior years. Then the students really have to drop some extracurriculars (very popular at our school) to continue. We also had many private school tranfers for IB. Most could not hack IB but found they liked Woodrow and stayed for AP.

Our program is modeled on the one at Garland High School in many ways. We had a lot of help from them setting it up and our DISD trustee, Mike Morath, is a Garland IB grad. Woodrow Principal, Kyle Richardson had children in IB at Garland.

Since the principal who set this up, Ruth Vail, returned to school for her doctorate and the original IB coordinator, Dr. Kathy Scherler, left to teach in college, there has been a change in philosphy for the program. Originally it was open to anyone who wanted to try - now it's limited to a more selective group of 75 slots for each year.

25 completed the diploma programme and a few others completed IBCC. Other big news at Woodrow these days is that the STEM Academy has been certified as the best in Dallas.
