Vienna - School Report Question and Answers
What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?
There is a Middle School Counselor who checks in with kids. At the High School level, if your kid doesn't want/need anything out of the ordinary, the counseling is ok. If your kid requires more advanced learning, it's more difficult. The High School requires all students to take an introductory science course. If your child intends to enter university in a science, medicine, or engineering field that requires work in biology, chemistry and physics, it will be impossible to do unless they forego taking the full IB diploma. Because the introductory science course is required both in Grade 9 and Grade 10, even filling all elective slots with science would not make it possible to take the full IB Diploma program and still take all three sciences. - Sep 2020
