ycis-cie-awardYew Chung International Schools (YCIS) has earned a top honor from the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). YCIS was presented with the “Cambridge Award for Excellence in Education” in recognition of their longstanding commitment to providing a world-class, global education. Notably, they are the first and only school in China to receive this award. The success of the YCIS program is reflected by their students’ results, including: Cambridge Top in the World IGCSE Awards; Top in China IGCSE Awards; High Achievement in IGCSE Awards; Best Across IGCSE Awards; Achievement of the highest percentages in A*-A across a wide range of subjects in the June 2011 examination series. These awards are some of the most recent examples of the history of excellence at YCIS.

“This is a great honor for our students, staff, administrators and directorate who have all worked very hard to achieve excellence within the IGCSE curriculum established by CIE,” said Mr. Tom Ulmet, Superintendent for Yew Chung International Schools in China, who accepted the award on behalf of the Schools and the Director, Dr Betty Chan. “Special certificates have been given for the past three years as a new type of regional honor by CIE. YCIS Shanghai and YCIS Beijing were joined last year by YCIS Chongqing and YCIS Qingdao in having Top of China (ToC) and/or Top of World (ToW) examination results. This year CIE are recognizing the bigger picture of performance outcomes, and YCIS China has certainly earned its place by having more ToC and ToW Awards than any other single group of schools in China. This is certainly an exceptional, newsworthy and outstanding result.”

Authorized as an accredited Cambridge International Examinations Centre, YCIS Shanghai has consistently prepared students to achieve top percentiles, with 57% of the recent graduating students achieving A* to A and 87% A* to C in their 2011 examinations.

Attending the afternoon ceremony were YCIS Administrators and Division Heads, and CIE representatives, including Ms. Ann Puntis, CIE CEO, Ms. Janet Morris, CIE Director of Communications and Customer Relationships, Dr. Ben Schmidt, CIE Regional Director Asia Pacific, Ms. Stella Jiang, CIE Senior Schools Development Manager for China and Ms. Lina Li, CIE Schools Development Manager for China.

University of Cambridge International Examinations is the global leader in international standard qualifications for 5-19 year olds, and its IGCSE results are recognized by educational institutions, universities and employers worldwide.
