The end of a school year is always a bittersweet time. While students and teachers alike look forward to the last day, eager for some time to relax and recover, a sense of loss also comes with the departure of the senior class. The end of high school marks the first major milestone in life, a seismic shift for young adults who must step out into the world on their own. While every school strives to prepare its students as best as it can, NIST has always aimed for more–for excellence.
NIST International School’s Class of 2014 once again demonstrated the quality of education the school provides, and much more importantly the quality of the graduates themselves. This year the NIST seniors were accepted into over 150 universities across the world, including 31 ranked in the top 100. This also included 4 in the top 10, and 12 individual acceptances to the 4th best university in the world: UCL (University College London). Yet the numbers do not compare to their greatest accomplishment: 55 of our graduating seniors were accepted into their first choices! First and foremost, we strive to ensure that our students choose universities that match their strengths and interests, and the high number of graduates who can attend the schools they feel are most appropriate for them is something we take great pride in.
Congratulations to all of the graduates, and good luck as you go on to make a positive impact in the world!
