Southwestern is an IB school where we learn how to be balanced students. Along with being balanced, we are knowledgeable, reflective, communicators, risk-takers, and inquiring. The diploma program at Southwestern prepares us for college by giving us college material work. These classes are optional and you can take full DP or just one. If you are not able to manage, then you can drop the class, but you should still try to do your best. These classes will also help your g.p.a. out and colleges will notice if you are succeeding in higher level classes along with other activities outside of school!
