Taking the lead in STEM
Both the International Baccalaureate and the French Baccalauréat diploma programs offer breadth, depth and an interdisciplinary approach to studying chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics. International High School students prepare rigorously for the challenges that lie beyond the classroom, and beyond college. Proof positive is our students’ engagement in local summer internships. In 2013, the Stanford Institute of Medicine Summer Research Program accepted 60 students out of some 1,400 applicants into their 8-week internship—a rate of 4.3%. Of those 60 students, International High School sent two: Ariel Lowrey ’14 and Alexander Seutin ’14.
