At ICS we are proud of our reputation as a non-selective school that encourages and enables all students to undertake the full IB Diploma Programme. We are aware that if we were to selectively admit students into the IB Diploma, the ICS IB grade point average results would increase by a number of points. However, we remain firmly committed to our belief that all students can achieve individual success in the IB Diploma Programme. We encourage and support all students in attempting the IB Diploma Programme. Therefore, once again we had 99% of our students presented for the full IB Diploma.
The class of 2017 have received offers from many prestigious institutions around the world. A large number of our students have received offers from universities such as: Imperial College London, University of Edinburgh, King’s College London, Durham University, Loughborough University, University of Warwick, Berklee College of Music, University of Miami, New York University, Syracuse University, University of Colorado Boulder, Northeastern University, TU Delft, Maastricht University, Bocconi University, IE University, McGill University, University of British Columbia, EHL and Zurich University.
This year we are delighted that one of our students achieved a perfect score of 45 out of a possible 45 points. Furthermore, 22% of our IB candidates achieved a score of 38 points or higher which is quite an achievement for a wholly inclusive school. In addition, 30% of ICS students were awarded the IB Bilingual Diploma. Our mean score is steady at 33.5 points with 91% of our students earning the IB Diploma. We are proud of all our candidates.
As the only fully inclusive international IB school within Zurich our results continue to be excellent thanks to the dedication of our highly qualified teachers, supporting specialists and the wholehearted support of our school’s families.
