Outstanding Finish for the 2018-19 Top IB Graduating Student!

Graduating students of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme are stellar examples of inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people.

We are pleased to announce that Anna Maria Zubieta, a graduating student of the IB Programme for the 2018-2019 school year, scored an impressive 43 out of 45 possible points in her studies! Anna Maria finished with a 7 out of 7 in her French, Math, English, Chemistry and Physics courses; the highest score attainable in an IB course. 

My decision to complete the IB Diploma Programme at St. Thomas Aquinas was the best and most fulfilling decision I have ever made in terms of my education, said Anna Maria. “Not only do I feel that the program has better prepared me for university, it has also shaped who I am as a student and as a human being. I now embrace challenges rather than avoid them, which will serve me well in a competitive university setting.” 

We wish Anna Maria the best of luck as she begins her studies in Chemical Engineering at McGill University, in the fall of 2019!​
