Last week, IAA Director Dr Hana Kanan attended the Council of International Schools (CIS) board meeting as Vice Chair in one of Segovia's remarkable archaeological sites at the IE University.

Dr Hana also met IAA alumni, currently studying at IE, listened to their positive feedback pertaining IE, their performance and well-being. She also met Jorge de la Calle, Director of Global Development & Internalisation at Gredos San Diego (GSD), where both discussed future plans on strengthening the partnership between IAA and GSD in terms of sports training for IAA students, sports coaches visiting IAA and a language exchange programme. GSD is a cooperative that manages six schools in Madrid based on a vision of fostering tolerance whilst instilling values based on respect for human dignity and promoting interest in Science and Humanity.

Congratulations IAA's Grade 10!
Wednesday, 01 August 2018
Congratulations to IAA's Grade 10 students on their great performance in the IB-MYP e-assessments. We would particularly like to congratulate those who scored over 50 points (out of 56) and our top student who scored 55 points. We would also like to congratulate those students who took voluntary additional subjects and who now have 11 MYP subject grades for their transcripts. We have 54 students in Grade 10 and all 54 were entered for the full MYP Certificate. We are pleased to announce that we scored above the IB world average in all but two of our subjects, and that our average MYP total was significantly higher than last year. As usual, we are encouraged by the strong performance in the Interdisciplinary exam, which is a confirmation that our students can genuinely draw on bodies of knowledge from many disciplines and integrate them to create new understanding. We wish our Grade 10 students all the best for their Diploma years, which given the MYP results attained this year, look to be very promising. Alf Mabrouk.
