French Baccalaureate Results
This week we received the results of the French Baccalaureate for the newly graduated Class of 2016, and they are far and away the best ISB has ever had. Not only were all 20 candidates admitted to the Bac, but all of them with a mention (honors), 2 of them with Mention Assez Bien, 5 with Mention Bien, and an astounding 13 (fully 65% of the group) with the highest distinction, a Mention Très Bien.
With such strong individual results, the overall average for the class turned out to be a spectacular 16.35 out of 20, easily besting our previous record from two years ago, which had been an already remarkable 15.56.
As happens every year, we will have to wait until early July to get the scores from the International Baccalaureate; but we can already congratulate the Class of 2016 for these great accomplishments that crown the end of their ISB careers. Congratulations go as well as their teachers, both this year and throughout the years.
