It has been a hectic but welcome return to school for me this term, following time spent recently in busy Shanghai meeting families and future members of our International Student Program, then a week in Japan at the International Baccalaureate Conference, coinciding with the glorious cherry blossom season, capped off finally with a short family holiday in Vietnam.

Our students have again achieved some excellent results across a broad range of programs with many strong scores across subject areas. (more…)
