is IB worth it if i want to go to art school?

is IB worth it if i want to go to art school?

I'm not very good with time management and the stress level that i am experiencing due to the IB. I have been in an IB school for as long as I can remember but I'm realizing now that I don't have as much time to work on my own art anymore. my top choice is parsons in nyc and I don't know if the IB is hurting more than helping. 

Not all my subjects are that demanding but history has been taking up all my time and energy. Maybe it would be better to drop IB and do the IB art course and the IB lang-lit course AND THATS IT. I need opinions because i'm dying. I'm in my second semester of junior year .

my subjects are:

lang lit HL

history HL 

art HL 

ESS

MATH ST

SPANISH B

Hello, if you wish to go to art school then IB isn't really necessary. I'm not familiar with Parsons in NYC so I have no idea of their requirements. If IB is really taking you down, I recommend to quit and go to normal high school. I wish you luck :)

I have a similar courseload as you (in the second half of my junior year as well), with English/History/Art HL and Math Studies/Spanish/Physics SL. It's interesting because I'm applying to architecture schools (not too far off from art), so the only courses that I really need are Art, Math, and Physics. If you're focused on art schools and pretty sure that's where you're headed, then I would recommend maybe dropping 1-2 courses to pay special attention to Art and Lit/Lang. I 100% understand your predicament as I'm in a similar one, but in the end IB does look rather nice anywhere you apply for whatever you study. :) Best of luck!
