The International School Nido de Aguilas



Congratulations to the Class of 2020 IB Diploma students who achieved great results in an unprecedented year. The 2020 cohort held the largest number of registered candidates (91) in Nido history. This was a unique year, as the IB exam session was not held, and our students did not have the opportunity to display their subject knowledge through exams in each of the two-year courses. Not taking tests was disappointing for this group of scholars as they had been building up for these exams. Instead of exams, IB students were assessed on a combination of their non-exam coursework, their predicted grades, and the historical data for each course. Nido's traditionally strong performance in the IB Diploma Program played a positive role in the results for this year's students. Impressively, Nido students continue to significantly outperform their worldwide counterparts based on global averages of course grades, the IB core (EE, TOK and CAS) and their overall diploma score.

The following table shows the current results summary for the IB Diploma Program students who completed the 2018-2020 two-year college preparatory program (data will change slightly as some students have requested that their work be re-assessed). These statistics are right on par or slightly better than previous Nido performances.

Again, we extend a hearty congratulations to the Class of 2020 for these results and for upholding the Nido tradition of excelling in the IB Diploma Program. We wish them further success in their next academic and life challenges. The Class of 2020 will be uniquely well-prepared for an ever-changing world with their adaptability and resilience in a challenging Senior year.

Team Coaching Cycles During Hybrid and Distance Learning

Nido Learning Coaches Tom Ferrebee and Nicole Zito recently shared with Student-Centered Coaching expert Diane Sweeney how they have been able to coach our teachers from a distance over the past year and now in the Hybrid model. While challenging, they also found new possibilities for how they collaborate with our teachers.

Congratulations Class of 2020 for PTU Results!
