Thanks to CDL’s variety of diplomas, each of our students found the best fitting choice for them.
For Serena, this was the IB, as its variety of classes allowed her to explore her interests, encompassing maths, physics, history and art, and to find herself.
Komron chose to pursue the High School diploma programme and is taking five AP (Advanced Placement) classes this year. The flexibility of the AP program allowed him to take the three lab sciences (Chemistry, Biology and Physics), which, as a strongly STEM-oriented person, was the best choice for him.
It was during a US university tour in 2019 that Komron instantly fell in love with the Rhode Island institution. While being one of the most competitive institutions worldwide, Brown is known for its relaxed feel, focus on undergraduates, and amazing professors. Its applied math and computer science departments are both popular and well regarded, which strongly drew his attention. The institution is also the only Ivy League school to provide an Open Curriculum. This is also what drew Serena’s interest as it will enable her to explore her diversified interests and to major in a concentration that she is truly drawn to.
Serena and Komron's’ dream of attending Brown university would have never come true without the constant support and encouragement of their parents who never failed to remind them that they are capable and that if they believed in themselves, they could achieve whatever they set their mind to.
In addition, the school’s teachers gave a helping hand by inspiring them to continue exploring their passions and interests, and as an added bonus, they wrote thorough letters of recommendation.
