Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Darius

Friday, 26 March 2021

This week, we spotlight our twelve-grader Darius, who joined ISR ten years ago in grade 2. Since then, Darius has always been a committed member of the ISR Community. Darius is an excellent student and is currently in the final year of the IB program. After completing his IB at ISR, Darius would like to study data security at a university in Bavaria. He has been involved with the topic of data protection/internet security for some time now, and it is particularly important to him that he also informs his classmates on the subject and provides helpful tips to improve internet safety.

Darius has taken his devotion to privacy, internet security, and online fairness and used it as the launching point for much of his work in the IB program and as a passion-project for his CAS portfolio. He has worked closely with the IT Department to suggest and implement changes at the school in the name of a safer, securer, and fairer internet. Furthermore, he’s helped lead discussions in homerooms and offered advice about how to protect devices from “creepy advertisers” and unwanted solicitations. To ensure that his important project continues after he graduates from ISR, he will share his project and ideas with younger students at ISR

His teacher, Mr. McGee, is very enthusiastic about Darius’ achievements this school year and adds “The hope for every student who goes through the IB program is that they are able to both discover and actualize the concepts and subjects in their life that will guide them in their future.  Arguably, no student has done more in this year’s class than Darius. “

We are very proud to spotlight Darius one of ISR’s many outstanding students!

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who represent our school motto, “we enable great minds and strong characters”. No matter if it is academic success, special commitment or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
