French International School students celebrate excellent International Baccalaureate Diploma results
[Hong Kong – 9 July, 2018]
The French International School (FIS) congratulates its International Stream students on another year of excellent performance in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).
This year’s cohort celebrated achieving an average score of 35 points which is 5 points above the world average of 30 points (May 2017). 27% of FIS students received the prestigious Bilingual Diploma and all our students’ results reflect their own individual stories of accomplishment and hard work. FIS was the first school in Hong Kong to be authorised as a World IB School in 1988, and celebrates 30 years of excellence in the IB Diploma Programme this year. The programme is designed to give students a broad, wellrounded international education and the skills needed for success at university and beyond.
“These outstanding results are testament to the hard work not only of our students but also their teachers. We are very proud that all our students committed to achieve their own personal best. Our Class of 2018 have become remarkable young adults and we wish them the best in their future endeavours,” said Ian Clayton, Head of the International Stream.
For the upcoming academic year, FIS students have received offers to study at Imperial College London, King’s College London, London School of Economics, University College London, University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh, University of Exeter, University of St. Andrews, University of Warwick, NYU, University of Pennsylvania, McGill University and Hong Kong University to name a few. Review complete list of institutions which have made offers to our students outside France here. 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.
