Saint Andrew’s School (Boca Raton, FL) Gains IB Accreditation

Saint Andrew's School Gains IB StatusSaint Andrew’s School began school this week as a fully accredited International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) World School.

Head of School, Dr. Ann Marie Krejcarek sees the IB’s rigor as a key to graduate’s future successes:

“Answering our students’ and parents’ calls for the very best college preparatory education has led to addition of the IB Diploma Programme…By offering the IB, our students can take advantage of this internationally renowned program and a rigorous curriculum that provides tools for success in the global marketplace for the twenty-first century.”(Saint Andrew’s School Debuts International Baccalaureate August 23)

Saint Andrew’s believes so strongly in the IB that the school is “in candidacy to add the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) in 2011.”

To our knowledge, Saint Andrew’s becomes the seventh US boarding school offering the IB.

    What a shame. Parents should expect tuition to skyrocket at St. Andrews in addition to seeing an entire generation of brainwashed Progressives. IB is a globalist scam, an NGO of UNESCO and a waste of money. However, since St. Andrews is a private school, this is where IB belongs, not in our American public schools and only those who chose this sort of politicized education should have the opportunity to pay for it.

      My Friend, you are way off base. I’m from Tampa, where my kids went through Private. First went through HS at Private. Is now Graduated D1 School. Second Child made decision to either move to Top Jesuit School (which would have been done) but fortunately “Heard” about this IB thing. Knew nothing…but intrigue got me to look into it….Thank God, as I saved $60K in Tuition.

      My kid now at Florida (Went in as rising Junior) …This is second Semester, and he is among other things Gold Key, Senator, KA, and looking to get into something called JHMP (Med School in another Semester). He came out of IB with Diploma ans Score of 35. He is on Full Academic Scholarships at UF…..

      In case you have concerns about Liberal crap….That is where you must come in regardless of School…You cannot pay for Conservative Culture anymore, as you know the entire Education System is Filled with Idiot Liberals….But by doing your job and teaching the rest of the Story about Capitalism, you kid will not only survive but will thrive.

      There is NO ACADEMIC PROGRAM EVEN IN THE LEAGUE OF IB DIPLOMA PROGRAM. The better ones go ahead and test wth AP crap as well.

      Here is what he came out of High School with, while Captain Golf Team, Playing BB, and Editor in Chief of Yearbook

      Chemistry 2045 and 2046 8 hours
      Biology 2010 and 2011 8 hours
      Math College Algebra 4 hours
      Calculus AB 4 Hours
      US History 3 Hours
      History Americas 3 Hours
      World History 6 Hours
      Statistic 3 hours
      English 6 hours
      Total 45 Hours…Maximum available

      Had he gone the typical “Jesuit” route….Maximum AP crap would have probably been about 15 hours or so…..and he would NOT HAVE BEEN anywhere near the kind of Student he is….Not one of the 250 that graduated from Jesuit came close….And by the way, my kid was NOT VALEDICTORIAN…..only 5th in Class, and 75 in School District of 13,000 Prox.

      Learn what the heck you are talking about my friend….Good Luck either way
