Over the average of international baccalaureate for the third consecutive year01/09/2012
Once again students of international baccalaureate at the Experimental Bilingual School of Palmares showed to the world for the third consecutive year an achievement of 90% approval. It means that of 30 young people that form this group, 27 approve the program.
These data were delivered by the International Baccalaureate Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, what placed Costa Rica for the third consecutive year over the average of other countries.
"Study the international baccalaureate meant a great learning, not only academic but also for life, for our generation. We discovered skills that didn’t know we had, and we learned that if we really propose something to ourselves and works hard can make it true", said Rebeca Arias, the student with best results at the Experimental Bilingual School of Palmares. The idea with this program is to get the goal of 20 public schools throughout the country, mainly in the communities where there are fewer opportunities. There are currently schools in San Jose, Alajuela, Guanacaste and Limon.
ASOBITICO awards scholarships
The International Baccalaureate Association of Schools of Costa Rica (Asobitico) hope to help many students, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, so it will provide scholarships to those who need it.
They also support the schools so that they have the equipment and appropriate training of teachers.
This is provided by donations from private companies committed to improve the quality of the national public education, and the support of CRUSA Foundation, doubling these contributions.
