(Class of 2019)

“When I came here, I had no expectations. I didn’t really expect much from this school. I thought it was just an ordinary school with ordinary people. But it turns out, I was wrong. IBA and all the people here were just the opposite of ordinary. It was unique and full of people who understand me.”

Min Ji Kim

(Class of 2019)

“It is a big surprise for me to graduate from IBA. I totally did not know how to speak English when I first came here to the Philippines, that I could not even distinguish between small and big letters. I even thought that okra was a green chili before. I was that confused and made lots of mistakes. However, I was helped by my very supportive family, teachers, as well as friends. With their support, I did my best to develop and reach the top. And on my journey to the top, I realized one of the most important things in living life, that no man is an island. I needed help and asked for help. I also needed people to share my success with. I really appreciate everyone in my family and school for helping me grow and achieve my goals.”

Minjeong Park

(Class of 2019)

“Speaking English used to be a terrifying thing. I had been caught up in doubt and just accepted that I could not do it until I came to IBA. IBA was my first step. At that time, I didn’t know anything. It was my teachers’ and classmates’ enthusiasm and thoughtfulness that helped me adapt quickly and use the English language. I really want to say thank you again for all your help. Although still a work in progress, I can say I am no longer terrified but confident.”

“Being a high school student at IBA has been the most precious, memorable and fun experience.  I am really going to miss IBA so much because it has become my second home.”

Hyon Jin L. Kim

(Class of 2019)

“As I look forward to this day, I couldn’t help but look backward to see how much I have changed. From the Hyon Jil who always wanted to laze around to the Hyon Jil who would want to do something new each day. IBA has helped me change. The school’s competitively friendly environment pushed me to better myself together with all my classmates. Before this, I would always find reasons to be lazy but now I’m always eager to get something done because of the craving to be productive.

“Six years in IBA never felt long to me. In those six years, I was able to try many new things that I could not have experienced in other places. Unique school projects turned me to be positive, open minded and creative, while considerate teachers trained me to become a mature young adult with values such as honesty, solidarity and integrity. IBA has inspired me to continue to excel in academics as well as in extra-curricular activities. I learned so much from my teachers, classmates and the learning environment of IBA as a whole. International British Academy has left me such unforgettable memories that are very important and valuable.”

“When I first arrived at IBA, I did not know what to expect. I was nervous- it was a new place with new faces. I thought I would be spending the year alone. But I was wrong. I soon made friends that made it more comfortable for me to stay. I found a new home. The school changed me to be a more assertive person, which I did not expect. I came in as a very shy boy but now I have the confidence to express myself in different ways. I also have met so many interesting people with interesting values and perspective.”

“During my four years in IBA, even though it got tough during the end of the high school, I had fun. There may have been some ups and downs, I can say that it was such a great experience. Thanks for proving to me that high school life is not as scary as it is seen in the movies.”
