The community is once again celebrating the achievements of our graduating class. The 2017 cohort have been a caring group of young men and women who have worked together to achieve personal and academic success.
With this year’s Grade 12’s having another solid year – with 97% attempting the full IB Diploma and a pass rate of 91% – KIS has maintained a 5 year average Diploma score of over 33 IB points, with an average pass rate of 96%, and average participation rate of above 85%. KIS not only continues to have students perform at the highest level, but KIS continues to make the IB Diploma and strong results accessible to a broad population – for the Class of 2017, this included two refugee scholars.
Our students will be joining other KIS alumni at top universities in various countries, including the United States, The United Kingdom, Canada, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Japan and Thailand. In total the 33 students received 95 acceptances from 66 different universities.
All of our graduates were accepted by a range of excellent universities including those ranking in the top 100 of the Times Higher Education rankings of the best universities in the world: University College London, University of Bristol, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, University of Manchester, University of Warwick, Emory University, Haverford College, Indiana University Bloomington, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Penn State University, Purdue University, University of California at Berkeley, University of British Columbia, University of Amsterdam, Delft University of Technology, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Hong Kong University and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
KIS is also very happy and proud to see our refugee students graduate with full IB Diplomas and with offers from universities, one of them with a full scholarship offer and financial support in the United States valued at over US$200,000.
Most of all we are proud of the students for becoming responsible, compassionate international-minded and globally aware people who will go on to inspire others around them.
We wish our class of 2017 much success in the next chapter of their lives!
