Stories from our international boarding schools

2019’s IB Diploma results are in – and they’re outstanding!

After more than 50 years, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is still providing an exceptional education to students all over the world. We are thrilled to see that this has been consistently true at EF Academy.

This year marks a personal best for the IB results from all of our campuses. Worldwide, the average IB pass rate is 78%, so with EF Academy’s average among all three campuses being 84% this year and an outstanding 43 points as the highest score, EF Academy students have had exceedingly strong results.

We are immensely proud of our IB students who can not only look forward to attending some of the best-ranked universities in the world but can walk into the next chapter of their lives feeling confident and well-prepared.
