VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Valdosta city school has been selected to offer a first-rate diploma program. Valdosta High School has been named an IB World School.
This means students have the option of enrolling in the International Baccalaureate Program. The rigorous courses offer Juniors and Seniors a cultural, international perspective on their typical subject areas.
Students who complete the program will be awarded a specialized diploma in addition to their standard high school diploma.
"Everything they're going to learn is going to be based on how other cultures see history, how they view English, and what they believe in as well, so that it's now just South Georgia Education," says Betsy McTier, the school's IB and AP Coordinator.
Valdosta High School's principal, Gary Boling, says, "Certainly our students at Valdosta High School deserve the very best, and this is the very best that the entire world has to offer as far as a high school diploma is concerned."
Valdosta High is one of only 27 Georgia schools to be honored with designation as an IB World School.
