“The IB was moulding my perspective about my place in the world and the value of what I could contribute to others.” — Brandon White


Alumna: Osiris Mancera

Student: Rishi Nair

“Failures are always stepping stones to success”. — Rishi Nair


Alumna and teacher: Tazeen Rashid

“This past year we’ve collaborated with a low-income school in India. […] And right now we have a penpal system where [the students] are interacting, and amazingly enough they find out that they have more in common with them, than differences.” — Tazeen Rashid
