    Yeah, well on monday I started my first day at Rickards High, and It's an IB school or international Bacculariot (I hope I spelled it right), and I was wondering if anyone else has or is in highschool more specifically an IB highschool. If so Please tell me what it's like because, I'm really worried.

    Spelled: international Baccalaureate

    I believe I had a discussion with my Econ/Gov teacher about this sort of program last year. If I recall, it's a rather intensive programme, often focusing on a particular subject. I found it an interesting idea.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, however.

    I'm still not sure what IB means completely, but I did however choose this school because A- it gives me a much better chance in getting a scholarship in a college, B- It isn't my zoned school because it is over run by snobby rich kids who do any drug that's handed to them.

    The spelling is baccalaureate (I think) but, don't worry, you have plenty of time to learn it before graduation. Anyway, I doubt I've ever used the word before in my 45 years. One of those schools is near here and it's supposed to be a little more rigorous, like schools in other countries. Whatever that means.

    My daughter's school is over run by snobby rich kids, so I know what you mean. The city redistricted our neighborhood, which is more than half minority, into the wealthy end of town's middle school & high school district, so the racial balance wouldn't be too out of whack. I must say the wealthy and upper middle classes aren't all as snobby and druggy as I had thought, but they certainly have more than their fair share. And they definitely are a good advertisement for maintaining estate taxes and preventing further generations of Bushes and Kennedys. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    You're lucky, at my old school almost every prep or rich kid was either a complete redneck(sorry if I offend anybody but it's the only way I know how to describe it) , a druggie, or both, because it's in and hip and cool. And also in their eyes if you're different, then You're not okay.
