One of the most challenging high school programs, yet totally useless. IB students rarely have a life, and if they do usually do not do well in their academics. The IB curriculum is usually adapted to their specific high school, however IB students are required to write IAs in every subject, the world lit essay, and extended essay (4000 words) and complete at least 150 CAS (creative, active, service) hours.
The average IB student gets between 2-5 hours of sleep every night, due to hour long procrastination and a huge work load. They are also typically divided into at least 5 groups:
- The hard working, well doing nerd (no life)
- The hard working, not so well doing nerd (no life)
- The semi hard working, well doing normal teeny (a life)
- The "I don't give a shit" person (PARTYYY)
- The smart person who doesn't work (PARTYYYY)
Despite the different types of IB students the typical IB student is awkward. They lack the normal gossipy world of high school, and are sheltered and protected from anything that's not school-related. On top of that, whenever IB students hang out, the only thing they are able to talk about is school.
It is however to be considered, that most IB students hate the IB program and wish they could "drop out" or "drop to academic".
