Students learn a great deal about themselves as they go through the IB Diploma Programme, as they are required to examine, explore and reflect upon what they value personally.
Benefits for Students
Our students consistently out-perform World Averages by very significant margins. Our proven Faculty consistently prepares students to achieve academic success.
Given the number of competing demands for a student’s time and attention in the Diploma Programme, RHS IB Students develop the ability to prioritize their activities.
Historically, The IB Diploma Programme at Richmond Secondary has been particularly successful at graduating Candidates with IB Diplomas: over the past 12 years, our Diploma success rate is 88%, almost 10% higher than the World Average during that time.
Over two-thirds of IB Diploma Students are admitted to the UBC Faculty of their first choice, a higher admission rate than any other Graduation Program.
Since 2005, RHS IB Students have received over $2.5 Million dollars of University Credits from institutions such as UBC, SFU and UVic for outstanding achievement in their IB Coursework.
