My oldest daughter is 10 years old and in 5th grade. She attends a girls' prep school but there is another prep school in town that offers the "IB programme" for grades 2-12. Given apples to apples on test scores, grades, extracurricular etc., would a top University or College prefer the child from the IB program versus a "traditional" prep school or put differently, do top Universities tend to select a certain # of students from IB programmes to fill their metrics. Or is it even a factor during the selection process? Does anyone from the College community have any other insight as to how to "shop" for the best private school for your child? Thank you so much!
