George School students achieved outstanding results on their Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams this year. A record number of students took those exams with 203 students sitting for 368 AP exams and 158 students sitting for IB exams in 29 subjects.
This year, AP students scored a 4 or higher on 61 percent of their exams and a 3 or higher on 84 percent of the exams.
For the fifth year in a row, all IB Diploma candidates were successful in earning their diplomas. One student achieved a score of 44, just a point short of a perfect score and the highest score in our history. Overall, graduates averaged 31.9 points—of a possible 45 points—exceeding the 2016 world average last year of 30.07.
George School International Baccalaureate students scored above the world mean average in 23 of 29 subjects, including Economics at Higher Level, Biology HL & SL, English Literature HL, and Higher Level Maths. Three of our students earned the highest possible score of seven in the subject test Higher Level Maths.
“These remarkable achievements are a compliment to both the students and their teachers,” said Head of School Sam Houser. “They affirm the strength and distinctiveness of a George School education.”
