Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Several weeks preceding Red Bank Regional High School’s graduation ceremony, a smaller one was held for a special group of students — those receiving the coveted International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. RBR is one of only four schools in the county, and 14 in the state of New Jersey, to offer the internationally renowned IB program.

The school’s IB coordinator Ryan Hilligus addressed the seventh RBR IB graduating class, asking that the students reflect on their “two intense years” in which they attended over 1,000 hours of IB classes and approximately 20 hours of exams; wrote thousands of words of extended essays and completed over 4,000 hours of creativity, activity, and service efforts.

The students were among the more than 75 participants who created 125 fanciful holiday cards filled with best wishes for the children at St. Jude’s Hospital in Chicago. RBR teachers Jennifer Casaine and Cassandra Dorn act as coordinators for the activity, which expanded this year to two extra days, and which drew the participation of everyone from athletes to International Baccalaureate students.
