International Baccalaureate Diploma Rates

My previous post was about the International Baccalaureate program.  A friend of mine pointed out that Plano has an above average diploma rate.  It turns out that not all graduates of the IB program actually receive an International Baccalaureate diploma.  In 2011 twenty-nine percent (29%) of the students failed to receive the diploma.  Nationwide the rate was 33% that failed to receive a diploma.  So if your child works through the program to the end, your child has a 1 in 3 chance of not getting the diploma.  I think that is worth knowing.  Here is a copy of the diploma rates in PDF.
