Congratulations are in order for 10 students who have braved the rigors of a full International Baccalaureate schedule to become full IB candidates.

Students who complete a full IB Diploma often go onto college ahead of the rest of their incoming class with eligibility to skip some college classes, saving themselves (and their parents!) a considerable amount of money.

All students are seniors at J.I. Case High School, the only Racine Unified high school to offer the IB program. Students at Jefferson Lighthouse Elementary and McKinley Middle Schools also have the opportunity to participate in the IB program before moving onto Case for the high school curriculum.

Later this summer, the candidates will learn if they’ve earned enough points to become full IB Scholars, according to the e-newsletter from Racine Unified.

The IB candidates are: Elizabeth Behling, Maria Jose Castillo Venegas, Noor Hammad, Zachary Hanchon, Angelina Lopez, Tyler Nelson, Hannah Parsons, Shaelyn Ramirez, Sandeep Reddy and Kennedy Stacy.

The newsletter also makes sure to thank the IB teachers who shepherded the students through the required essential essays: Eric Halleen – Psychology, Edna Davila – Spanish, Angela Cervera – English, Amy Hanson – English, Nicola Malacara – English, Marisa Fellion – Chemistry and Michael Johnson – Biology.
