Congratulations to our inaugural International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma graduating class and IB certificate recipients! Morris Jeff is proud to announce that 75% of our inaugural IB full diploma programme cohort have earned their IB diplomas, while 19 additional students have earned IB certificates. These students have worked hard throughout this inaugural two-year program period, persevering through the pandemic to achieve these honors.
The following students earned an IB diploma: Elzyan Hadji, Pia Heyert, Tayla Hunter, Nadia Reitmeyer, Kerri Rose (who also received a perfect score of 7 in Global Politics), and Beatrix Sparks. In order to earn an IB diploma, students are required to earn a minimum of 24 points out of a maximum of 42 points through the passage of seven courses in different subject areas. This inaugural class scores ranged from 27 to 38, an amazing outcome that speaks to the dedication of these 6 students.
In addition to the above, the following students earned one or more IB certificates which may translate into college credits at a number of U.S. colleges and universities: Christian Beyer, Dax Bordenave, Jolie Bordenave, Nona Bravo, Shani Collins, Laundale Galmore, Alejandra Garcia (who received a perfect score of 7 in Spanish), Ashley Giles, Alyassia Journee, Bryce Laurent, Carter Maberry, Misty Murthil, Trenton Nicholas, Jessica Richard, Liberty Uhack, Tyli Walker, Ja’Briel Weston, Alandra Williams, and Leila Yates.
Again, congratulations to these students of the Class of 2021 on a job very well done!
In addition, we’d like to thank our dedicated IB DP teachers for helping make this great success possible. They are: Timothy Dilligan, Aaron Forbes, Leah Jackson, Robert Lorsbach, Carmen Mack (Programme Coordinator), Gerard McClelland, Noelle Reznik, Michael Tillman, and Bradley Troll.
The International Baccalaureate is a rigorous, two-year program that results in personal and academic development and, upon successful completion, a globally recognized diploma. An IB education also fosters diversity, curiosity, and a healthy appetite for learning. Schools like Morris Jeff must be authorized to teach IB programs by the International Baccalaureate Organization (ibo.org).
