IB + Dirt

We really think you should get your hands dirty in your education, literally and figuratively. At VVS, juniors and seniors study the dynamic International Baccalaureate program, but we do it with a twist. We call it IB + Dirt. What we wish is for you to involve yourself in all parts of the job, to put in the effort and to experience school in a way you maybe never have before.
