"International Baccalaureate Programme". An internationally recognized program for academically gifted high school students. Similar to AP, however some may argue that it is more challenging and more unified. This program has special requirements for the students and to get the "IB Diploma," a student must be taking enough HL and SL courses chosen from 6 different categories. In addition, each student must take Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and complete the Extended Essay. Students enrolled in this program will generally be accepted into difficult colleges because they are impressed by the super sacred IB seal that will be attached to the first page of the student's transcript.
IB Program student 1: "Hey, wanna hear a joke?"
