IB Letters have left the building
Word is that IB high school letters have been mailed out. Post your news here.
The scoring rubric is up on the OAE site:
In a nutshell, there are 950 possible points.
-50 of those are for living in the neighborhood boundaries of a school.
-450 are for 7th grade ISATS (225 math+225 reading)
-450 are for 7th grade grades (112.5 each for reading, math, science, and social studies) Getting 2 B’s will knock you back 75 points.
The informational meeting doesn’t count as points but is considered “mandatory” to be considered for a program.
Rumor is that the cutoff for Lincoln Park’s IB program is 830 this year. Does anyone recall cutoffs from previous years? I’m curious to see if they’ve gone up this year.
