An IB student who did not earn her
        diploma reflected…
“The tangible reward of getting the IB
  diploma was something to strive for ,
  but…The IB programme did us all good
  through less tangible, more abstract
  ways…It wasn’t just an education of the
  mind, but also an education and
  deepening of the soul.”
