We have a high schooler who wants to do IB and will be a junior when we move to the lower Hudson valley area next summer. How do the IB programs at Clarkstown North and Clarkstown South compare? Also, I know Dobbs Ferry HS has the oldest IB program in Westchester Co., but are there any other IB programs in Westchester? Thanks!

Harrison and Yonkers Middle/High School also have an IB program. EF International Academy in Tarrytown also has one.

If you move to adjacent CT, I believe there's an IB program in Stamford too right near Harrison.

I can say that the EF International Academy campus in Tarrytown is beautiful. I enjoy coming there everyday when school is in session. The teachers are amazing, and the international students appreciate the community and it's story book setting. It has commanding views of the Hudson River, and is rapidly expanding it's operation. The school is accepting more American students as well. Word is out! There's a new IB school in town!

Can someone please educate on the advantages of an IB program for an american born student vs. a traditional public school in Westchester? Just curious.

There is one practical advantage, though I'm not sure if many people are aware of it. Since IB is recognized in many countries, it will be easier for the IB grad to go to a college overseas where fees are much lower than the US. Some universities abroad have trouble recognizing a plain US high school degree.

I was checking out Oxford this weekend. The tuition all in all comes in at about $30k per year, but that doesn't include your transatlantic flights each year of course. They accept IB. But they will also accept SATs - 2100 and above, or 5 APs.

It can get crazy getting into Oxford. Try St. Andrews. Tuition is only $19K. Even less in Bologna.

For a student in Virginia who does IB High School (yes we really have them ) they could anticipate entering The College of William & Mary as a secondy year student.
