By the Numbers

The best international schools in the world are in Asia, as determined by achievement on 2015 content-based external assessments–and Concordia consistently ranks among the top.
Results compiled from published international school profiles

Concordia and our sister school Hong Kong International School, together with Singapore American School, make up what we call the 'Big Three' American curriculum schools in Asia. Why the 'Big Three'? Based on published results of content-based assessments like AP subject exams and SAT 2 subject tests, each of these three schools produce students who consistently perform well above their international school peers and on par or above students from the best United States boarding schools.

High School Profile

Take a walk-through of the 2015-2016 High School Profile. It’s unmistakeable—what you see is truly what you get!

Creating Stability

39% of high school teachers have renewed their employment contract three or more times creating stability in a mobile environment.

Enriched by Our Diversity

34 nations are represented by the 2015-2016 Concordia student body.

While the numbers are impressive, those are just the outcomes; what makes Concordia special is our holistic approach to education that addresses the whole child within an incredible community founded on Christian values. Concordia’s success is built upon our ability to offer best-in-class curriculum that is responsive to the needs of our students and not mandated from external sources such as IB or College Board. Our passionate and talented teachers create and deliver authentic learning experiences and programs that engage students and impact their lives forever. Dare to compare our school on scores, longevity of teaching staff and pioneering programs and what you will find is that life success starts with Concordia.

Advanced Placement

All Concordia students are expected to exhibit an ability to think critically and creatively, write clearly and persuasively, and participate actively in class discussion. For those seeking additional challenge in particular disciplines, Concordia currently offers more than 20 AP courses and exams to provide high school students access and exposure to college-level rigor. The Advanced Placement (AP©) designation for a Concordia course indicates that the course will have a greater intensity in terms of workload and evaluation, and will culminate in a required external exam.

Visit College Board site for more information on AP©.

SAT II

At Concordia we strongly believe that external assessments which assess content over a student’s ability to take a test most accurately reflect the quality of education a student is receiving. SAT II subject tests are one such content-based assessment that test understanding of an area of study where a student’s knowledge is directly related to their learning in the classroom. Consistent, strong performance on these types of assessments reflect well on the quality educators, engaged students and supportive families that make up the communities at these top performing schools.

Visit this College Board site for more information on the SAT II.

SAT

Concordia’s SAT score has been the highest among any reporting international school for the last four years. However, while an important test as an indicator for colleges to use in their admission processes, at Concordia we feel strongly that the SAT II and AP assessments are more accurate indicators of quality education and student learning as they capture understanding in an area of study where a student’s knowledge is directly related to their learning in the classroom.

Visit College Board for more information on the SAT.

PSAT

While most U.S. schools administer the PSAT to their students in Grade 11 and some to their Grade 10 students, at Concordia all students in Grades 9 through 11 take the PSAT each year. The additional two years of practice allow our students to be well prepared for taking the PSAT in Grade 11 when they are eligible to qualify for National Merit Scholarships.
