By Jade Bulecza - bio | email VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The best students in the Valdosta City School System now have a challenging new program to prepare them for college.
The International Baccalaureate program is a step above the Advanced Placement curriculum.
There are 27 IB programs in Georgia. The one at Valdosta High is the only one south of Columbus. The program is two years.
Rising juniors from Valdosta and other districts can apply to the program.
"They do more research," said Betsy McTier, AP/IB Coordinator. "They have more problem-solving strategies. It has a curriculum in it that is more empathetic."
School officials say the program gives students the best education they can receive anywhere in the world.
