be right.
IB programs promote the education of the

IB students are more engaged in high school
A 2009 study compared the academic, emotional and social engagement of IB students against
non-IB students in eight IB high schools. It also compared IB students to non-IB students in a
national sample.
On all measures IB students were more engaged in school than non-IB
students.
“Across each of the domains of student engagement, IB students
rated their levels of engagement more highly than non‐IB students.
This held true for both the targeted sample of eight schools, as well
as the national sample.”

IB students more likely to attend selective colleges
In a 2012 study of diverse alumni from IB programmes in Chicago public schools, researchers from the
University of Chicago found that, compared to a matched sample, DP students are more likely to:
•
enroll in college
•
attend a more selective college
•
stay enrolled in college.
This study suggests that IB students are not only going to better
colleges in greater numbers but are performing better once there.

IB students more likely to attend selective colleges
A 2011 study of almost 25,000 IB Diploma and certificate students found:
IB students were more likely than the national average to attend
college full-time, with nearly 70% attending selective or more
selected colleges.
