Branksome's IB programs and the Diploma Program are huge advantages—besides gaining an additional diploma when you graduate, it entirely reshapes your way of thinking. I was genuinely being interested not only in the curriculum but the projects I worked on, because they were so relevant in the world. For example, in my Spanish class, instead of being tested only on grammar and verb tenses, our reading comprehension tests included the reading of newspaper articles from Spain (or Mexico or other Spanish-speaking countries); our projects included researching the history and tourist attractions of a particular Spanish-speaking country and creating a tourist brochure for it; and, for our oral test, our entire class went to see the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit at the AGO, we researched Frida's work and then analyzed one of her paintings orally.

Through the IB, you learn so much, not only about what you're studying, but you become a much more culturally aware person.
