    DUBAI, UAE — Emirates International School – Jumeirah students celebrated with gusto today as the results of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme were announced worldwide. EIS Jumeirah student Tanveer Kaura scored a stupendous 44 points out of the maximum 45. Ten students also attained scores between 40 and 45 points.


    The class of 2019 at EIS Jumeirah is distinguished by many outstanding students and top scores. A total of 120 students sat for the IB Diploma examinations this year, achieving an average score of 33 points, beating the global average of 29.6 points.


    EIS Jumeirah — the first IB school in Dubai established 1991 that has seen 1,700 students successfully graduate so far — held its 26th graduation event last month at La Perle, the region’s first and famous aqua theatre venue in Al Habtoor City. The 120 students of 28 nationalities made up its largest graduating class to complete the IB diploma or the career-related programme. A quarter of these students have studied at the school since kindergarten.


    With the UK, US and Canada turning out to be EIS Jumeirah students’ most popular choice of university destinations, many of them have bagged placements at stellar institutions such as New York University, Georgia Tech, University of California Berkeley, King’s College London, Imperial College London, University of Toronto and McGill University.

    EIS Jumeirah is the first school in the region to offer the IB Diploma programme, giving students a broad, well-rounded international education experience and the skills needed for success in university and beyond.
