Congratulations, Class of 2016!
The following students from the class of 2016 have earned the IB Diploma: Kate Bussen, Kim Chungong, Ben Dowdle, Josh Hill, Jordan Hoffman, AJ Iversen, Malorie Neal, Bridgett Neff, Madison Perry, and Gannon Rialti.   These students received one or more "sevens" in an IB course:  Kate Bussen (Math Studies), Jordan Hoffman (Environmental Systems and History), AJ Iversen (Math SL as a junior), and Sarah Weidenhofer (Business Management).  A seven is the highest IB score possible and is very difficult to earn. Also deserving recognition are these students who earned the IB Career-related Certificate: Yurari Barrero, Aubrey Burkholder, Jake Ham, Laura Merwin, and Tina Ngo.  Congratulations to all of these students for their outstanding achievements!

IB Testing for 2016 is complete!

About 150 students completed IB exams during the month of May.  All students who tested should have received information (on bright-colored paper) with the personal code information needed to access their scores after July 6. Students can access scores at candidates.ibo.org.  Most students provided college information to Mrs. Metzler last spring.  In that case, IB will automatically send transcripts to your requested college. Most colleges should have received and processed that information by late August. 
Congratulations, Class of 2015!
The following students from the class of 2015 have earned the IB Diploma: Sydne Anschutz, Natalie Boone, Sydney Butler, Hannah Coley, Danielle Foley, Lauren Gregory, Jackson Ham, Jaci Herron, Harlee Kelley, Jake Nippert, Marina O'Neill, Grace Tibbetts, and Emily Walker.  Also deserving recognition are the first students in LSHS history to earn the IB Career-related Certificate: Sydney Graham, Sara Kostelnick, Ashley Myers, and Suzie Wilson.
