The 2016 graduates of the International School on the Rhine once again delivered a very strong result: the average IB Diploma scores were again four points above the IB world average of 30 points.
“We are very proud of this; almost half of the group were also awarded a bilingual diploma. 'Enabling Great Minds and Strong Characters' is the motto of ISR International School on the Rhine,” says Peter Soliman, proprietor of the school.
One ISR student achieved 43 points (out of a maximum of 45 points) equalling the best result for an IB diploma in the history of ISR, which corresponds to a 1.0 in the German Abitur. Less than 1.9 percent of the 150,000 IB Diploma students worldwide in 2016 achieved this remarkable score.
It is no wonder therefore that the doors to the best universities in the world are open to ISR graduates. Our class of 2016 with 34 students has received 107 offers from renowned universities, mainly in Great Britain, the Netherlands and the United States. The offers from German universities are not yet included as these will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
A selection of the universities were Imperial College London (GB), King’s College London (GB), the University of New York (USA), the IE University Madrid (Spain) and the University of Maastricht (The Netherlands).
A few students have also decided to have a supervised gap-year to follow an internship or travel during the first year after their graduation.
Lord Mayor of Düsseldorf Thomas Geisel has already praised the important economic and cultural location factor of ISR for the whole Rheinland region, during his commencement address in June at the Hotel Nikko in Düsseldorf. Additionally, Mr. Aguilera Aranda, acting Spanish Consul General at that time, reaffirmed that in these uncertain times a solid international education and a positive and open minded attitude is essential for a peaceful coexistence.
Ms. Lyons, long-term school director of the ISR, is thrilled: “I wish to congratulate all our students on their achievement. I’m very pleased that the hard work of our teachers and our IB students has paid off. They can be justly proud of their well-deserved success.”
The International School on the Rhine gGmbH (ISR) is a privately owned, non-for-profit school, which has invested heavily during the last two years in its facilities, such as IT equipment and of course its teachers.
This investment in turn reflects a very high demand in quality standards and as a result a growth of over 30 percent in its student population within the last two years.
The school's student count for 2015/2016 was 670 and a continued increase of this number is estimated for the upcoming year.
