Fantastic Results for our IGCSE Students
Congratulations to our students who achieved some of the best results YCIS Chongqing has ever seen. They have set the bar high with a truly exceptional performance. These results put us in the same league as some of the best International schools in the world.
Our Friendly Spirit Starts in the House
Last academic year we introduced our new House system. This means we now have four Houses – Blue Water House, Green Earth House, Grey Wind House and Red Fire House. We spent many Friday afternoons in our various Houses through the year, introducing ourselves, meeting House buddies (special Secondary friends for Primary students), forming House values and engaging in lots of exciting House activities.
Even More Reason to Celebrate the Class of 2020
Our Class of 2020 had lots to celebrate when their results were issued in June, a second year exceeding the global average, another 100% pass rate and 100% achieved a bilingual diploma. However, YCIS Chongqing along with many other school’s around the globe felt their students still deserved more and we asked the IB to review student results to ensure they reflected our students’ abilities and potential.
Great Anticipation for A New Academic Year
The first week of the new school year always brings great excitement, surprise, and enthusiasm and this year is no exception! Bright sunshine and blue skies welcomed students, teachers and parents back to campus on our first day, you could feel the anticipation in the air, everyone was ready for an inspirational year of learning.
2020-2021 New Student Orientation
As the final day of the last academic year came and went, we knew that the start of the new academic year would bring its challenges. As a school it has been our aim to bring some normality back to our community, employing additional teachers to support in our classroom along with developing a warmer and more welcoming environment.
Graduating Class 2020. A Great Success.
A huge congratulations to the Class of 2020 students on their fantastic International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme results! Our students averaged 33 points out of 45, which is well above the global average of 29.9. This is the second year that YCIS Chongqing students have surpassed the global average. The mean grade achieved by our students was 5.27 points out of 7, again this was above the global average of 4.80. Along with their academic success, the students have also grown in the characteristics of empathy, critical thinking, creativity, risk-taking and global citizenship, becoming well rounded lifelong learners.
We Are Ready
At YCIS Chongqing we are busily preparing ourselves to be "August ready" so when the gates reopen on August 17, the school will be ready to receive both new and existing students to our campus.
On the final day of the academic year for the students, they left school, but many knew it wouldn’t be for long as our first ever Summer Camp was just around the corner. The camp gave them the opportunity to reconnect with friends, and have fun, developing new skills and succeeding in different types of non-academic challenges.
Meet Our New School Leadership Team
As a new SLT we are excited to welcome back new and existing students to our school, which is why preparations are already well underway for next academic year, with changes being made to our school environment and new resources being unpacked and prepared ready for use. One of the key developments for us as a school will be communication with our school community. As an SLT, we will be sharing regular updates on the developments within school and our progress against our key school improvement priorities. We will also be providing greater opportunities for parents to speak with us about how we can further support the development of our students along with providing you with a series of workshops to discover what YCIS stands for and how we provide a very unique international learning experience.
