The value of an IB education with Stanford University

As an IB parent and the Assistant Dean of Admission at Stanford University, Debra Von Bargen has firsthand experience working with many IB graduates. As her son began the IB Diploma Programme, she saw him do things he never thought he could do. In her role as the Assistant Dean of Admissions, she is excited to see how a student has taken on the IB and knows that IB students show very high success rates during their first year of university.

"EIS is the place that is full of my high school memory. I met best friends and best teachers there. I felt very comfortable at school like I was at home. I would miss the time I spent with my friends in the small room to study and the small swimming pool where I really worked hard to carry out EE experiment."
