Henrico HS surpasses world average for IB diploma percentage

While all members of the Henrico High School International Baccalaureate (IB) class of 2012 were awarded the Virginia Advanced Studies Diploma, the county's school system recently received notification that 93 percent of the IB Diploma candidates from that class were awarded the IB Diploma, surpassing the world average of 78.1 percent.

“I am extremely proud of the leadership of Mrs. Priscilla Biddle, Henrico High School’s IB coordinator, the IB faculty and the class of 2012, who have set a high bar for other classes to reach,” said Nancy LaVier, the IB Educational Specialist for HCPS.

The 61 members of the IB class at Henrico High School were awarded more than $5.3 million in scholarship funds, setting a new standard of excellence for the IB program.
