IB Evaluation Visit Report is cause for pride

By Directors

The Report from the IB on AIC has arrived and we are all very pleased with the outcome. The first line begins “…..the IB has not identified any matters to be addressed”. For a school this is high praise and means that the IB inspectors were satisfied to a high level that AIC is implementing the IB philosophy. The report commends the school for being proactive in implementing the IB Approaches to Learning, our international mindedness and the governance structure that they say “supports all aspects of the implementation of the IB Diploma”.

 

Other areas for commendation include the language policy which promotes the growth of English and gives support for Chinese language. The school buildings also came in for commendation especially the Science and Art rooms which have been designed to be supportive of learning involving practical work. There was also a commendation for the Library and how it has been developed as an important resource for learning.Another area for praise was the wide range of IB Diploma courses that we offer. They were impressed that a relatively new and still small school was expanding its programme so quickly. Although the IB were primarily looking into the Diploma programme they also were impressed with the Pre-Diploma course complimenting it for the planning and the implementation of the ‘Learning to Learn’ programme.

 

One of the aspects of the IB Review was to help set future goals and the IB team made some recommendations to help us continue to grow as a school. From the Self Study process we had already identified that teachers would benefit from more time to meet and plan collaboratively and we have made some timetable changes for the next school year to allow this to happen. The teachers will be happy that this was supported by the IB team. We have also made a commitment to have co-ordinator positions for both Extended Essays and Theory of Knowledge and this idea was also endorsed. Because we set high standards and expectations for ourselves at AIC we often just focus on areas to improve and miss the positives. This Report reminds us to look up and to see the many good things we have achieved and to feel proud of our school.

 

Receiving the IB Report has been a positive finish to the school year and the Directors thank everyone concerned; - the teachers, the parents and the students who were all part of this process. Next semester sees us in our new and even better location at Nansha where AIC will continue to be a powerful force in the education available in South China.
