Director's Letter to Parents 致家长的一封信
Posted 04/10/2019 08:07AM


9 April 2019

Dear Parents,

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.

Sincerely,

Ally Wu

Director


致家长的一封信

深外国际部首届DP毕业生大学录取喜报

尊敬的各位家长:

大家好!

我们知道家长们非常关心我们首届DP毕业生大学录取的情况,我们很高兴SWIS第一届毕业生在大学录取中取得了喜人的成绩:

截止4月9日,我们第一届DP毕业生32人,共收到6个国家和1个地区84所著名大学发来的录取通知书,其中美国44所,英国23所,加拿大7所,瑞士3所,荷兰1所,中国大陆2所,香港4所。

澳洲大学常规申请还没开放,我们有几位澳洲籍学生还要再等待一段时间。另外有一些香港、加拿大、内地和欧洲的学校,录取通知也还在发放中。接下来我们会陆续和大家分享更多战报。

我们首届毕业生的录取情况有一个很大的特点,就是"一种课程,多元发展"

一种课程:深圳外国语学校国际部(SWIS)成立于2011年,是一所在小学(PYP)、中学(MYP)和高中(IBDP)阶段均采用国际文凭课程体系(IB)并获得IB授权的国际学校。

多元发展:IBDP课程因为其难度大、范围广、培养学生除学术能力之外的全面素养的特点,得到了越来越多全球大学的认可和青睐,目前全世界有90多个国家(包括美国、加拿大、英国、澳大利亚、新西兰、日本、新加坡、香港、中国等等)的大学均接受并垂青IBDP的毕业生,我们的录取情况也印证,真正是做到了一种课程,多元发展。

"十年磨一剑,砺得梅花香"。SWIS第一届毕业生在这春意盎然的4月收获了辛苦耕耘换来的累累硕果,所有SWIS社区成员都应该为毕业生们感到骄傲。在此要感谢为DP毕业生付出艰辛努力的我们的老师和学校的升学团队,非常感恩一路走来有家长们的信任、陪伴和支持。

最后,希望毕业生们不要懈怠,要继续努力,以最佳的状态迎接5月的IB大考。祝愿SWIS的莘莘学子能带着学校和家庭的嘱托,怀揣梦想、勇往直前,为创造个人和世界的美好未来而继续努力!

此致

敬礼 邬晓莉 校长
