Welcome back, and welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We hope that you have been refreshed with your time with family and friends during the summer break, whether you were here in Ethiopia or out in the wide world.
Congratulations to our high school and IB teachers—and our recent graduates, of course—on the IB diploma results from May 2015. 81% of our candidates were successful, and their average score was several points above the world average.
Meanwhile, the campus has been a busy place, as per usual during the long break. Several containers of classroom materials and furniture have arrived and are being distributed. Enrollment is strong, with about 890 students expected (including more than 220 new students). We have had a good week with our new teachers and they are eager to meet everyone!
