Student Pathways At a Glance

Head of Academy Dr. Maggie Koong praised the efforts of the students, “Our outstanding results in the IB Diploma again this year reflect the dedication and commitment of the graduating class and their teachers, especially under the challenging pandemic situation.  The 5 top scorers have joined Victoria since kindergarten and have learnt together like a family for 16 years. Through the journey here, they demonstrate the true IB spirit of developing responsible global citizens with strong academic, social, emotional characteristics.” Secondary School Principal Mr. Christopher Coates said, “Through the students' hard work and determination, they have overcome every possible obstacle they have faced, and there have been many. However, we are most appreciative of the people they have become; these are goal-oriented students of sound characters who always conduct themselves in an ethical manner, regardless of their chosen disciplines. The entire VSA community is extremely proud of their accomplishments.”
