Regional program, extracurricular activities inspire student to expand her goals

​Subbu turned her focus to the IBT program after graduating from the SciTech program at Tomken Road Middle School. "The incorporation of business, along with science and technology in the IBT program changed my path. Also, the variety of course work and opportunities outside of the classroom helped me explore possibilities and achieve goals."

Subbu is planning to study business in university, with a minor in engineering. She is currently the co-captain of Gordon Graydon Memorials's robotics team and the president of the school's DECA chapter. "The IBT program and extracurricular opportunities helped me develop a range of skills and knowledge that I wouldn't have gained normally," explained Subbu. "Understanding the importance of managing, marketing and communicating an idea is just as important as developing the idea."

The IBT program provides students with a challenging program in all academic areas. Students enrolled in the program will explore subjects from a global perspective. Since the program began in 1994, it has become a recognized leader in:

  • business and entrepreneurial innovation
  • the use of technology to support learning
  • the development of positive student attitudes towards academics, personal management and teamwork
  • providing students with lifelong learning strategies that encourage success

Regional Learning Choices Programs empower students by providing an opportunity to develop and explore skills in a particular area of interest. More information about regional programs is available online.
