PCI is thrilled to see a perfect score of 45 two times in the past few years! Tony Chen also achieved a perfect score upon graudating from our I.B. Diploma Programme. Tony has since completed his Bachelor of Health Sciences at McMaster University, and continues his studies at the same university.  He is pursuing a combined MD/PhD in Biochemistry.

Tony echoes the sentiments of many Parkdale IB grads when he states, “It was an experience which challenged my resilience, intellect, and creativity, teaching me the confidence to confront obstacles and rise to the occasion. It gave me an opportunity to learn from an engaged cohort of classmates and a passionate team of teachers, both incredible sources of inspiration and support….Thanks for the great memories Parkdale!”
