FILE PHOTO: On April 11, 10th graders enrolled in the Baccalaureate Prep program at Lake Wales High gave a big “thumbs up” to news that they will have an official IB program for grades 11-12, starting in 2012-2013. (The students were out of uniform when this photo was taken, because it was “water awareness day” and they donated $1 for the privilege of wearing blue.)
