Exceptional Showing for the Class of 2021 on Global University Acceptances

May 14, 2021

ISNS is delighted to celebrate our grads and all they have achieved. These young men and women are going out into the world, representing the best of ISNS and truly embodying our ideals and values. They are the first cohort that have been with ISNS throughout the MYP and completing the DP together. This is a momentous occasion as it highlights the benefits they received with the MYP equipping them well for the DP. As with graduates before them, our Seniors demonstrated excellent resiliency and determination in completing their studies.

Mr. Brian Kelley, IB Diploma Programme Principal, noted "The Class of 2021 is the fourth cohort at ISNS to successfully complete the Diploma Programme (DP), continuing ISNS' tradition of academic excellence. Through hard work and self-determination, the Class of 2021 completed all requirements to successfully earn their diplomas and be admitted to top universities around the world. 

Using the skills that ISNS strives to develop in each of its students, the Class of 2021 showed continued academic and personal growth throughout their time in the MYP and DP. The top universities that these young women and men will attend have admitted undergraduates that truly embody what it means to be an ISNS Phoenix. 

Thank you, Class of 2021, for continuing the ISNS legacy of exceptional academic and extracurricular success. As you embark on your next journey, your teachers take comfort in knowing that ISNS has equipped you with the tools needed to thrive at university, in your future careers, and in life. You truly represent the very best of what an ISNS education has to offer, and we are so proud to call you ISNS Alumni.”

Class of 2021 has once again broadened our alumni network by choosing to study in Canada, the United States, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Europe, Singapore and Korea! They have earned acceptance into 25 of the top 100 schools worldwide, and have received almost 2.1 Million RMB in scholarships to date.

Congratulations, Class of 2021, on your well-deserved successes!
