We are proud to be an inclusive school and our results continue to place our school at the top amongst other inclusive schools around the world. We are committed to accompany students through their entire educational journey.
As an IB World School, our Grade 12 students take the IB Diploma Examinations. In 2023, 116 students completed this examination..
For the 107 students who completed the full Diploma, 99% achieved a pass rate, compared with a world average of 80%. Our students achieved an average score of 35 points (out of a maximum of 45 points), compared to a world average of 30 points.
For the 9 students who took Diploma Programme Courses, they completed a total of 35 individual Courses, scoring an average of 4.3 points per course (out of a maximum of 7 points), which is an excellent result.
The Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test is an externally-referenced assessment tool to benchmark learning growth. Each year ISB conducts MAP testing in both reading and mathematics for all students from Grade 3 – 10.
MAP tests are created by the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) and administered by international schools across the world. The tests are multiple choice, adaptive assessments which usually take an average of 45-minutes to complete.
Reading — Spring 2023 w/ Spring 2022 Comparison
Mathematics — Spring 2023 w/ Spring 2022 Comparison
ISB MAP test results are reported along with the data from:
USA Normative Data 2020 (all students writing MAP tests in the USA); updated in 2020 and will be the one used for the next five years.
ECIS Schools (The Educational Collaborative for International Schools - which grew out of the European Council of International Schools) - a group of like minded international schools of which 78 write MAP tests;
EARCOS Schools (East Asian Regional Council of Schools) - the highest achieving region for international schools of which 91 write MAP tests.
Switzerland: there are 8 schools in CH that write MAP tests.
Note: Spring 2023 data for ECIS, EARCOS and Switzerland is not yet available since this is published at a later date. For comparative purposes we thus use the ECIS, EARCOS and Swiss Schools data from Spring 2022.
ISB Progress Data
Student Progress is a measure of the average progress made by students in a one year period, from Spring 2022 to Spring 2023. Progress is measured by calculating the difference between the average RIT score that a year group obtained in the current grade (e.g. Grade 5 Spring 2023) and the average RIT score that the same group of students scored in the previous grade (e.g. Grade 4 Spring 2022).
