The ratings take into account each school’s academic programs and ethos. Thanks to the IB Diploma Programme, Exupery students have the perfect framework to study subjects they enjoy – and the freedom to ask questions, make the occasional mistake, think critically and assess their own progress.
The ratings also take into account students’ success in state and international olympiads. We often share stories of EIS students’ triumphs in olympiads and how we are proud of them. Yet sometimes it is a challenge for us as adults to understand what they’re feeling in those tense and competitive moments. At Exupery we take care not to pressurize students to participate in olympiads unless they really want to. We will always support their interests and respect their final decisions.
All in all we are delighted to celebrate our position in the national ratings – it is as much a First Prize for all of us as it is for our brilliant olympiad contenders!
