Final preparations are underway for yet another big event at St. John’s. Next weekend, St. John’s is the proud host of the prestigious ISMTF Senior Mathematics Competition. Over 180 of the best students in mathematics from 36 international schools from Europe, Africa and Middle East will visit our school for 3 days to enjoy mathematics and compete for the best results. The students, representing 34 different nationalities, will be hosted by St. John’s families during their stay in Belgium.
St. John’s has a rich history in mathematics and competition success, having won this competition in the past. It is the only school in Belgium and one of very few schools worldwide to offer the Further Math course, a very challenging Higher Level course of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program, open to the most motivated and able students. Further Math is strongly recommended by the best U.K. and U.S. universities. Former St. John’s students who followed the Further Math course have attended prestigious universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, M.I.T. and Stanford.
We would like to thank everyone in our community who is contributing in some way to the success of this great event.
