Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional School in Cyprus (AISC) through its par­ent or­gan­i­sa­tion, Esol Ed­u­ca­tion, an­nounced that its AISC Class of 2017 achieved a 100% pass rate in the IB Di­ploma re­sults. The high­est AISC score was 42 while the av­er­age point of 34 out of a pos­si­ble 45 points placed AISC ahead of the global av­er­age of 29 points. An im­pres­sive 83% of AISC stu­dents per­formed above the world wide av­er­age.

AISC stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in the ex­ams for 24 sub­jects, in­clud­ing English Lit­er­a­ture, Math­e­mat­ics, Bi­ol­ogy and Eco­nomics. AISC stu­dents achieved per­fect scores in English Lit­er­a­ture HL, Bi­ol­ogy SL and Vis­ual Arts HL. A Bilin­gual Di­ploma was awarded to 50% of the 2017 AISC co­hort who achieved Bilin­gual Diplo­mas in Greek and Chi­nese, mas­ter­ing two lan­guages to na­tive speaker stan­dard.

The In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate (IB) is the most widely recog­nised di­ploma in the world. Un­der the IB sys­tem, stu­dents are re­quired to study six aca­demic ar­eas and a min­i­mum of two lan­guages. The two year cur­ricu­lum cul­mi­nates in an ex­tended ex­am­i­na­tion pe­riod at the end of year two.

Ac­cord­ing to Michelle Kleiss, Direc­tor of AISC, “The char­ac­ter­is­tics of the IB Di­ploma Pro­gramme be­gin in our el­e­men­tary school. The IB sup­ports per­sonal devel­op­ment, time-man­age­ment skills and in­ter­ests, while stretch­ing the mind and fully pre­par­ing stu­dents for post-sec­ondary suc­cess. High school stu­dents come out of the IB pro­gram with the abil­ity to write high qual­ity re­search pa­pers, com­men­taries and es­says in their own words”.

Since 1976, Esol Ed­u­ca­tion has ac­com­mo­dated over 10,500 stu­dents through its net­work of schools in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Cairo, Ni­cosia and Le­banon.
