For the OSSD 40 hours of community service, we highly recommend that you try to have these completed by the end of the summer before you start grade 12 so it is one less thing to worry about. What qualifies as community service has been expanded, including some online opportunities

Can art student take IB Art HL? it is not shown on the form.
Shannon Howlett
01:18:55
It is important to also align HL choices with interests and strengths. Some students do better in getting a stronger Grade in SL Math rather than struggling through Math HL and getting a lower grade in the end.
Shannon Howlett
01:21:40
To assist in the SL versus HL decision, students are reminded to speak directly to their teachers to discuss the differences in expectations. Your current teachers have the best understanding of your suitability to do HL in a specific subject.
Shannon Howlett
01:22:22
Yes IB Art HL is certainly an option (and a great one at that)!
