The IB DP EVALUATION VISIT, October 11th – 13th 2021

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in this three-day IB DP Evaluation Visit. In a series of meetings with teaching and administrative staff, the governing board, parents, and students, the IB Visiting Team assessed how much EISB adhered to and demonstrated the IB Standards and Practices that are required to remain our IB World School authorization.

At the end of the visit, there was an ‘Exit Interview’ involving Ms. Lisa Kerwin, our MYP Coordinator, Mr. Jaymes Regualos, our educational director, myself, as the DP Coordinator, Mr. Gabriel Kalna, as our Principal, and our four IB Visitors.

The purpose of the ‘Exit Interview’ was for the IB Visiting Team to inform the school of its initial findings in relation to the extent a school meets IB Standards and Practices. If a school meets these requirements, the Visiting Team will not comment on them. If a school exceeds these requirements, commendations will be made. If the IB Visiting Team evaluates that a school needs to improve certain standards and practices, recommendations will be made.

It should be pointed out that the ‘Exit Interview’ does not reflect the Final Evaluation Report, which will indicate if a school retains its IB World School status. This final report, which must go through procedures within IB, will be released within a couple of weeks.

However, at this point in time, there were many commendations made by the IB Visiting Team. After meetings with our DP students and parents and with our wonderful and talented teachers, many commendations were made. EISB was congratulated upon its dedication to the IB Philosophy and its “strong partnership” between teaching staff and the community.

Thank you very very much to everyone
