The British International School Shanghai Puxi Campus has a very strong academic reputation based on its ability to help students produce consistently high level results through globally regarded exams validated by world-leading organisations.
As we move into the school’s twelfth year we are delighted and proud to report that, once again, the school’s graduating class has achieved outstanding results. All our Year 13 students take International Baccalaureate Diploma examinations in their final year - recognised as the most prestigious world-wide pre-university award.
The graduating class of 2016 achieved an average Diploma score of just under 36 points, compared with a global average of 30 points. One of our students scored 45 out of 45 and another three students gained scores of 44. A total of 15% of the cohort achieved marks of 40 points or better – more than double the global average.
Principal Kevin Foyle commented on the results, “We are all delighted with the outstanding results that our students have achieved yet again this year in the IB Diploma programme. I have always been impressed by those who set high standards for themselves, but even more impressed by people like our students and staff who maintain these standards of attainment over an extended period of time”.
These results are a testament to BISS Puxi’s modern research based approach to teaching and learning, from which all our students benefit, and, as a result, our students are well prepared to move on to study a variety of academic disciplines at prestigious universities across the world, including Oxford, Duke, Carnegie Mellon, Hong Kong, Middlebury and King’s College London.
