Meet our Graduate Heleen

Meet Heleen, Class of 2023 IB Diploma Graduate

Heleen joined BIS Abu Dhabi in 2021, beginning her IB Diploma journey in Year 12. After two years of hard work and dedication, she has graduated with an outstanding score of 43 points out of a possible 45, making her one of our school's highest achievers. The feeling of receiving her results was indescribable, as Heleen expressed, "When I received my results, the feeling was indescribable. I was completely lost for words, and I didn't believe it at first. It was truly an overwhelming sense of joy and accomplishment, which I was so unprepared for. Seeing my efforts pay off filled me with such a sense of pride and satisfaction, and it was such a special moment to share with my family."

Message from the Executive Principal

As I look out on the new road development that is happening directly outside my office, it helps me to reflect on the journey that has happened over the last twelve months.
