There were limited options for Polish students of high schools to pass final exams other then Polish Matura or International Baccalaureate (IB). But for a long time the capital city of Poland has seen a growing interest in alternative - American High School Diploma. A more flexible system of education combined with accredited Diploma is available at International American School of Warsaw.
The Diploma is recognized not only in US but also across variety of Higher education institutions in Poland.
"Our school follows international educational standards. We have very individual approach toward students, who may chose 5-6 subjects of their own and follow 2 year program finished with American High School Diploma. Apart from that IAS offers but Polish Matura and IB programs as well", says Matthew Krasner, Program director at IAS.
Final exams at Polish high schools are getting more difficult and many parents do not realize that there are alternatives at hand. An intensive, very demanding and exhausting programs such as IB may be too difficult for many. Thus, American Diploma program seems to become a perfect, individually crafted solution.
International IB program is now available across 38 schools in Poland and over 4 thousand worldwide. But difficulty of final exams - both Polish and IB - becomes explicit. According to Central Examination Board 78,5% of students have passed final exams in Poland in 2017. Some 15% did not pass one exam. Overall in 2017 approximately 35% of students have had problems with final high school examinations.
"American system is more flexible. It assesses 2 years of progress in chosen subjects. And tests are based on the level of students performance’’, Krasner adds.
