Superb Achievement in ISA Mathematics 2015
 

Our School’s Management is excited to announce another notable achievement by our students.   In the recent February 2015’s International Schools Assessment (ISA), Phaschapha (Elle) has obtained a score of 97.2% in ISA Mathematics, securing one of the highest ranking for Year 6 Mathematics among all participants from 226 international schools worldwide.  This is an exceptional achievement and marks one of the highest achievements in our school’s history. The score achieved by Phaschapha is equivalent to the Year 9 Mathematics standard, which is 3 academic levels higher than her current age. On behalf of St. Mark’s International School Management, we would like to congratulate Phaschapha and her family on this magnificent achievement.  For detail of her ISA result, please click here

 
When analysing the overall class performance statistics of our current Year 6 students, 11% of the total class population are achieving a Mathematics standard equivalent to end of Year 9, 45% are achieving a Mathematics standard equivalent to end of Year 8, and 11% are achieving a Mathematics standard equivalent to end of Year 7.  With this statistics, an overall of 67% of all our current Year 6 students are achieving a Mathematics standard between 1 to 3 academic levels above average Year 6 students in other international schools that participated in the recent ISA.  This is a very remarkable achievement as a class!
