For the third year in a row, Mid-Pacific's International Baccalaureate Diploma seniors have achieved a 100 percent pass rate.

All 29 seniors finished the school year with a 100 percent pass rate. The international pass rate is 89 percent, so this milestone is noteworthy, according to Mid-Pacific IB Coordinator Kymbal Roley, who took over the program in 2017.

"I am so proud of our resilient graduated seniors," says Roley. "This is such a testament to our students' hard work and perseverance despite the difficult year and challenges that COVID-19 presented."

As you might expect, students are not looking for an easy road when they commit to the academically rigorous IB Program. They thrive on challenging themselves.

"My goal when I took over the IB program four years ago was to focus on 'IB family,'" she says. "Students look out for each other and the teachers, parents, and administrators work together to support that process. They didn't give up when the program became difficult. #IBfamily has made all the difference. These students dream big and focus on their amazing futures!"

The IB program is recognized worldwide as an outstanding and challenging academic achievement. Universities around the world recognize the IB Program as the most academically challenging high school course of study. Many colleges and universities offer course credit for successful completion of IB classes and the IB Diploma Program.

"I want to congratulate our IB diploma seniors who over the two years in the International Baccalaureate program demonstrated incredible resilience, flexibility, and commitment," says Christel McGuigan, High School Assistant Principal for Academics. "I also want to thank all of the IB teachers and IB Coordinator Kym Roley for their support of and work on behalf of these talented and accomplished students. We are very proud of all of you!"
