The Winter 2018 issue of the Georgian profiles twenty-four alumni who were International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma candidates at George School. It marks the fiftieth anniversary of the IB Organization and the more than thirty years that George School has been graduating IB Diploma candidates. The issue is now available online.

This issue delves into how the school has made the IB its own and how graduates demonstrate that the answer to “What can I be with IB?” is—as Head of School Sam Houser says—“nearly anything.” The issue highlights a cross-section of IB alumni from Ari Solow ’87, the first George School student to earn a diploma, to newly IB-minted Eden McEwen ’17.

Representing varied fields and different points in their lives and careers, these twenty-four individuals are unified by being interesting, successful, globally minded, and as Sam describes, “bringing ethical commitment to their work.”
