O Castro British School exceeds the average compared to the other Spanish Schools, according to the PISA report
Our brother school in Vigo, O Castro British School, has had some great news that we want to share with you and offer our sincere congratulations. The good news are the outstanding results in the PISA tests (Students International Assessment Program), above the Spanish average and higher than Singapore, the leading country in the last PISA report, particularly in Science and Literacy.
Last March, O Castro British School took part voluntarily in the OCDE exams in order to test its position within the international context. These tests give reliable and representative feedback regarding the performance level of the students from more than 70 countries that, altogether, make nine tenths of the world’s economy. As it is well known, these tests are designed and taken by 15 year old students and they assess their academic performance in Maths, Science and Literacy.
The school got an average of 564 above Singapour and a result much higher than the Spanish average (492). In particular, the school from Vigo got a mark of 556 in Literacy (compared to the Spanish average of 496), a mark of 547 in Maths (compared to the national average of 486), weighing the first OCDE country, Japan.
The results are particularly positive in Science, with 589 points, 96 over the Spanish Schools’ average, obtaining the best results of all the schools assessed by the OCDE prestigious report.
From Coruña British School we congratulate the whole educational community of O Castro British School, especially students and teachers. We are so proud of our ‘big brother’ and look forward to equaling these incredible achievements ourselves one day. Enjoy this great news!
