For the very first time as IBDP Coordinator, I am able to address the school community and all friends of Klosterneuburg International School with extremely pleasing IB results. In 2017, KIS celebrates a pass rate of 100% with an average of 35,6 points, well above the average for IB schools which is around 30. This result is even more impressive when we bear in mind that 12 candidates managed to complete the IB Diploma and at the same time the Austrian matriculation exam.
Hearty congratulations to our class of 2017 for their excellent results! I would also especially like to mention Emilie Berger and Anja Weinberger, who, with 42 points each, are top of the 2017 class.
We are extremely proud of our IB results and our students’ academic performance and wish all our students well as they take up their places at top universities worldwide, including Oxford and Sciences PO (Paris).
Dr. Siegfrid Opelka, IBDP Coordinator
Klosterneuburg International School is an integral part of the long-established, local community state school Bundesgymnasium and Bundesrealgymnasium Klosterneuburg. KIS came into being in 2010 as an authorised IB World School. In addition to providing full teaching of the Austrian National Curriculum, KIS offers pupils the opportunity to complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). At KIS pupils generally graduate with both the Austrian school-leaving certificate (AHS-Matura) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
The world we live in is one of increased international cooperation, where cities, federal states, countries and even entire continents move closer together. Further and sustainable development of our school, answering the call of a united Europe and ready to take up the challenges of the world, has therefore become indispensable. The IB Diploma, with its central focus on intercultural competences, achieved ideally together with the “Matura” at the end of the pupil’s final school year, decisively boosts our pupil’s career opportunities in an increasingly internationalised professional world.
