IB stereotypes in your school?

The IB students are somewhat infamous at my school... While there are many IB students and regular students who coexist in harmony, unfortunately there are many regular students who spite the IB students and vice versa. The regular students appear to claim that the IB students are conceited and do not deserve their marks, whereas the IB students rudely assert that the regular students "have no future". I do not agree with either side in this petty strife and I believe that it is rather unfair to reduce either set of students down to such things. Nevertheless, it is likely that this stereotype of IB students at my school will persist.

It's the same in my school- most people seem to regard the IB students as living in a world of their own, and they think of us as quite snobby and stuck-up, which frankly isn't true. We technically exist in harmony, but because we don't share any classes or teachers (any more), we exist in separate worlds. I've noticed that it tends to be an issue, as when it comes to the events we're all supposed to organise together, the national program students tend to leave the IB students out of their planning... despite the fact that they LITERALLY HAVE AN ARMY OF STUDENTS WHO WILL DO ALMOST ANYTHING FOR CAS. XD

or

> High T ubermensch, fit, polygamous, plays chess, does not know wtf Netflix is, well-read pragmatist, capitalistic, business owner, High IQ Gangsta who'll steal your girl (even if she's a <8, just for fun)

my school is the only ib school within maybe 3-ish hours, so a lot of smart cookies transfer to take it (myself being one). i find that feeds into the stereotype that we're all super-smart nerds since we can't choose it "just for fun" without a bunch of paperwork and have to be committed to it.

i've noticed a lot of my classmates are really artsy, a lot of theatre kids. of the students who are into music, they all play several instruments, upwards of three. mostly all of them are going into sciences, although that's not exactly ib-specific. no future nursing students, though. mostly engineering.

in french class (my teacher is our coordinator) when we once listed our top three early choices of university, no one listed our local university and only a few mentions of ones within the province cropped up. this is specific to our year, or so our coordinator noted. very ambitious bunch, we seem. maybe just tired of nothing happening here.

I heard about such stereotypes, but I haven’t seen this in my school. I heard a lot of stereotypes about school, schoolchildren and the learning process itself, and many of them are simply myths. Recently I wrote an essay on this topic. Collaborated while writing with this company https://www.easy-essay.org/. I advise you these guys if you need to write high-quality written work at school, college or university.
