The International School of Luxembourg (ISL) has announced that its recent graduates received their International Baccalaureate (IB) results this week, with a 98% pass rate.
Commenting on these results, ISL Director David J Condon, PhD, commented: "These results are even more impressive if you consider that we have an open enrolment model, i.e. we do not select which students can pursue the Diploma; rather any student can do so. Yet, 98% of our students did pursue the Diploma and 98% of them earned it. This pass rate is well above the worldwide average of 86%".
Out of a total score of 45 points: four ISL pupils achieved a perfect score of 45 points; 27% of ISL pupils achieved 40 or above points (world average: 14%); ISL pupils' average result was 36.4 points (world average: 32).
Graduates are now attending some of world's top universities, including the University of Oxford (UK), the University of Cambridge (UK), the University of Warwick (UK), Stanford University (US), Harvard University (US), Duke University (US), McGill University (Canada) and Sciences Po (France).
Director David J Condon concluded: "I want to congratulate and applaud our students for their remarkable accomplishments. I also express my gratitude to the dedicated faculty and staff that work tirelessly to teach, support and motivate our students each and every day".
