How Northbridge provides students with a pathway to success in business and beyond

How Northbridge provides students with a pathway to success in business and beyond Northbridge International School Cambodia students achieve more than even they may have thought possible. We truly believe there is no limit to what students can achieve socially, personally and academically. Northbridge students excel at a range of disciplines, as shown by our excellent IB Diploma results this year, which this year were the best in the country.

For the last academic school year, our Grade 12 students achieved a pass rate of 100 percent. Our average score of 33 was 3.1 points higher than the IB global average of 29.9 points, and we had 78% of students achieve a full Bilingual Diploma (the world average was 32%). In addition, 8% of students achieved 40 points and above, the level of attainment required to gain admission to the world's elite universities, such as Oxford and Stanford.

Out of all the subjects taken this year for the IB Diploma, of particular note was the results of those that took Business Management – 54% of our students. Our students achieved a result of 5.5, 15% higher than the world average, strongly reflective of how our school provides a grounding in business, helping to prepare the world's next generation of business leaders.

Beginning in August 2020, we have built on this foundation by offering an innovative new program to go beyond pure business studies, and teaching the necessary creativity and soft skills that will enable our students to become innovative entrepreneurs and thought leaders.

The Entrepreneurial Studies Program at Northbridge is an exciting addition to the school curriculum that offers students a competitive edge for college and for the life of their career. Developed by The Startup Studio, a world leader in providing a disruptive solution to schools, this new program brings real and sustainable change into education to ensure students are learning the imperative skills now demanded by a 21st Century economy.

The Startup Studio was brought to life by a visionary entrepreneur whose mission is to ensure that as many young people as possible can get access to the skills that will enable them to realize the power they possess. The goal was simple yet very noble: give people a creative and hands-on experience that guides them on how to take risks and discover important value propositions that can impact the world around them while leveraging their own story.

Quite simply, all students at Northbridge International School Cambodia are not just being taught in the present, they’re being prepared for whatever may come in the future, in dynamic and forward-thinking ways that will serve them well in their career, and the rest of their lives.
