Mario Toth wanted the AICE Diploma because he saw it as an opportunity to acquire knowledge. He found it to be very simple but in his Sophomore year, during his online year, he rarely attended school causing difficulties as it was hard for him to do anything but he was still able to pass the exams. His favorite AICE class was AICE Literature level A because he found it to be “insightful and thought-provoking.” He also found Mrs. Schroader to be a “phenomenal” teacher.
His advice to anyone who wants the diploma is to not be motivated solely by the financial benefits of the diploma but to use it as a tool to gain a lot of knowledge. He finds that the AICE Diploma is a gateway to becoming “a well-rounded intellectual and a better human being.”
