The German Swiss International School is renowned for being a place of academic excellence, with students’ wellbeing placed on an equal footing with their academic achievements.
I am delighted to hear this year’s fantastic IB results and we are so incredibly proud of all our candidates. These students have not only worked immensely hard to gain these results, they have also wholeheartedly contributed to GSIS throughout their time at the school. We wish them all the very best for their bright futures.
This year’s Year 13 students have continued the school’s record of highly impressive results in the IB Diploma with a commendable 100% pass rate. Of the IB Diploma cohort, four students achieved full marks of 45 placing them among the top IB students worldwide.
GSIS’s current average points score is 39.9 out of a possible 45, and will probably rise following remarks; this score is well above the 2018 world average of 29.8 points and once again places GSIS amongst the top achieving schools worldwide.
Mr Ulrich Weghoff, Principal, said "I am delighted to hear this year’s fantastic IB results and we are so incredibly proud of all our candidates.

Each student was supported and encouraged throughout their two-year programme of study by our highly dedicated teaching faculty. We congratulate them all and look forward to hearing of their future achievements.”
