The SWIS community has been eager to see an update to the list of university acceptances of our first graduating class, the class of 2019.
By April 9th, our inaugural class have received offers from 84 world renowned universities: 44 universities are in the United States, 23 in the United Kingdom, 7 in Canada, 3 in Switzerland, 1 in Netherlands, 2 in mainland China and 4 in Hong Kong. These universities represent a range of locations, and each one was selected by the students and their families for the personalized fit for what the students intend to study.
In the end of this letter you will find a list of universities that have accepted our students through April 9th, according to the students' self-reporting. This list will continue to grow as universities have been notifying students throughout the Spring of their decisions. There are still many applications waiting for results from Hong Kong and Canada especially, and application period for Australian universities is starting soon.
After May 1st, our students will need to choose from all their collected acceptances the university they will attend for undergraduate studies. The final list of matriculations will be available after the graduation day and pending the results of the IB exams in summer. We expect each of our DP students continue to work diligently to the end of their program and reach their full potential.
I am very proud of what our first graduating class has achieved. As an IB continuum school (IB PYP, IB MYP and IB DP) started in 2011, SWIS has accomplished so much in a short amount of time.
I would like to thank all the teachers who work so hard for our DP students. Thank you to the transitions team for the many hours they have spent on application counseling and throughout high school to prepare the students for the process of applying. The daily commitment of our SWIS staff to students has made our secondary program competitive with the best in the world.
Finally, thank you to all of our parents for your confidence and trust! With your support, I am looking forward to what we accomplish by the end of this year and beyond.
