TESTIMONIALS FROM ALUMNI
"I never fully appreciated all that Eugene IHS had given me until I stepped into my first college lecture. I learned very quickly just how prepared I was to be in that type of environment, and how comfortable I was with that transition into higher education. I will never forget the great relationships I formed with my teachers and classmates, and will always thank the program for developing and cultivating within me a genuine interest in the acquisition of knowledge.”
"Attending an all-women's college, I inevitably have peers who hail from all-girl's high schools with the traditional ‘upper class privilege’ that comes with the territory. In describing my background, I am asked what schools I attended before, and surprise is often a response I get when others learn that I had an entirely public education. I have had the privilege of growing up in a community where language immersion, an IB education, and the term ‘global citizen’ is not only readily available, but considered a necessity. IB had me prepared to be a competitive and versatile student in college, and I know I will continue to use the skills I gained in high school in the future. Eugene IHS gave us a great opportunity to grow both academically and personally. I found I was able to perform well under academic pressure in college, and make connections across concepts and subjects. The IB has been integral in my ability to truly appreciate both my past and current projects. I think there is a certain skill developed in this program that encompasses both critical thinking and empathy towards other lenses.”
"Nothing prepares you better for success
