FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Another year of excellence reflected in French International School students’ exam results
[Hong Kong – 4 July, 2018]
The French International School (FIS) is proud to announce that its French Stream students have excelled once again in both the French Baccalaureate and Brevet examinations.
100% of FIS students successfully passed the French Baccalaureate, the French Ministry of National Education’s internationally recognised diploma. This year, three students achieved more than 19 points - an outstanding achievement. 40% of FIS students were awarded highest honours (mention très bien) and more than 68% were awarded honours (mention bien) or above. These results are outstanding and demonstrate the quality of our students.
For comparison purposes with 2017 figures, FIS students achieved 100% pass rate compared to 87.9% in France. 45% of FIS students were awarded highest honours (mention très bien) against 7.6% in France and 73% were awarded honours (mention bien) or above against 21.5% in France.
The younger FIS students who sat the French Brevet (DNB) examination this year were also very successful with 59% awarded highest honours (mention très bien) and more than 90% achieving honours (mention bien or above).
“Congratulations to all our students – I am very proud of these excellent results in my first year as Headmaster here” said David Tran, Headmaster of FIS Hong Kong. “Our students work incredibly hard and these results reflect not only their efforts, but also the commitment and dedication of our teachers. We aim to prepare students for the future and are delighted that these results will allow our Class of 2018 to continue their learning journey at some of the top institutions worldwide.”
FIS teachers are passionate about the education and development of young minds at all levels throughout the school. In September, a new Director of the French Stream Primary for the Jardine’s Lookout and Chai Wan campuses will join the leadership team: Marie ROIG. Appointed by the Agency for French Teaching Abroad (AEFE), Ms Roig is currently Primary Director of a school on Reunion Island.
