Building on the results of the previous five cohorts, all 19 members of the Class of 2017 outperformed the DP benchmark set by IB schools worldwide. Our students have achieved an average IB Diploma score of 35.3 points, which far exceeds the worldwide average of 30.1. No students scored below 30 points.

This year, 21% of students achieved an IB score of 39 or above, which is considered the threshold for admission to the most renowned universities around the world. One student achieved the distinction of scoring 41 out of a maximum of 45 points.

In addition to strong individual subject scores, our students demonstrated a strong commitment to the core elements of the IB Diploma – with 96% of the cohort receiving 2 or 3 core bonus points for the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and Extended Essay (EE) components.

For the last couple of years, the Academy students have performed well in the Bilingual Diploma and this year is no exception. Out of 19 graduates, 15 (74%) were awarded the Bilingual Diploma, which recognizes students who have achieved native or near-native level in two languages.

Members of the Class of 2017 have received offers from the world’s most prestigious universities, such as University of Oxford, Brown University, Pennsylvania State University, University of St Andrews, New York University, Durham University, UC San Diego, Northeastern University, Skidmore College, Chinese University of Hong Kong, and University of Hong Kong, to name but a few.
