Rigorous program would help distinguish college candidates during the selection process.
Fourteen Lindbergh High School seniors are pursuing the prestigious International Baccalaureate diploma in 2012-13, which they would receive upon graduation in May. Students in the IB program must successfully complete six exams, a course in Theory of Knowledge, a 4,000-word extended essay, and a self-designed program of 150 creative, action and service hours. Lindbergh is currently one of the only schools in St. Louis to offer IB courses, along with more common AP options.
