Congratulations to all the students who took the IB diploma this year at British International school of Washington! This was the eleventh graduating class and as an inclusive school with the core goal of celebrating personal and academic progress, we are justifiably proud of our growing tradition of excellence at IB and of the remarkable progress our students make.

We would like to congratulate our IB Diploma students on their outstanding results this year.


BISW students have once again achieved strong results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. BISW’s average score is 10% higher than the IB global average, widening the gap between ourselves and other IB schools around the world.

The programme is a widely accepted and recognised qualification for entry into higher education and universities worldwide.

Our students' average points per subject of the 2015 IBDP candidates was 5.34, significantly ahead of the 2016 global average of 4.7. BISW candidate’s score is 13% higher than the world average.

  • Top individual score was 43 –in the top 5% in the world (the highest possible IB score is 45). 40 is the level of attainment required to gain admission to the world's elite universities, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford.
  • 78% of the 2016 IBDP candidates scored a total of 30 points & above, a 6% growth from last year.

We would like to commend our teachers for another outstanding year. Your commitment to our students and school is what drives these exceptional academic results. On behalf of the parents and school, we would like to applaud you for always challenging our students to achieve more than what they could have thought possible.
