A rigorous academic program combined with co-curricular challenges is the key to success
Through the combination of a rigorous academic program and exciting and varied co-curricular challenges, students are able to discover and develop their strengths and interests in a learning environment that celebrates achievement.
Curriculum at Ivanhoe is grounded in rigorous academic standards, relevant to the interests of adolescents. All students are encouraged to achieve high standards and become life-long learners.
Students regularly perform well above the State average in ATAR scores, giving them access to University placements and courses of their choice. Regular assessment provides valuable feedback to students about how they learn, and it informs teachers about students' development of skills and understanding.
Following the release of the International Baccalaureate results, we can provide a consolidated picture of the academic outcomes and successes of the Class of 2018. Students completing their Year 12 studies at Ivanhoe Grammar School in 2018 have again performed to a high standard with many achieving their personal best.
Once again, congratulations to our Dux of VCE at each campus in each receiving exceptional results alongside Noah as our International Baccalaureate Dux who achieved an IB score of 43. This is equivalent to an ATAR of 99.7 and places Noah in the top 0.3% of the State. . Well done Matthew Kaufman from Ivanhoe Campus who achieved an ATAR of 99.85 and Julie Dong from Plenty Campus who achieved an ATAR of 99.5.
Congratulations is extended to all our students from both campuses, as we achieved on a consolidated basis (VCE and IB):
• 16% of our Year 12 students achieved an ATAR of 95 or above, placing them in the top 5% of the State
• 36% achieved an ATAR of 90 (top 10% of the State)
• 62% achieved an ATAR of 80 or above (top 20% of the State)
• 85.8 is the ATAR median for our students
• there were 26 combined perfect VCE subject scores and IB grades of 7 (highest possible grade).
As an open-entry school, students of all abilities are a part of our School community. Although the results above share some of our top achievements, the importance of celebrating the personal best of all our students cannot be underestimated. I congratulate all students who have worked to their capacity and thank the dedicated teaching staff who have supported them.
As their final year of secondary school came to a close, we spoke with some of our graduates and are pleased to share with you their reflections, wise words and hopes and dreams for the future in our seven-part interview series Celebrating the Class of 2018.
