Spotlight On Our Student Ye Jun

This week, we spotlight our twelfth grader Ye Jun, who joined ISR in grade 5. Ye Jun is currently in his last year at ISR on the IB diploma program and plans to study Computer Science after his graduation. He stands out as a well-mannered and considerate student. Ye Jun’s enthusiasm for learning and his exceptional social skills made him an exemplary student. His teacher, Mr. McGee, has known Ye Jun for several years now and adds “I have known Ye Jun since he was in sixth grade, when he became one of the founding students of the ISR Baseball Club I supervised and coached. I witnessed first-hand the kindness and helpful spirit he brought to the club, as he was one of the more naturally gifted players on the team, but always quick to help teach some of the more rookie members. He will be remembered positively at ISR because the baseball club is still active and adds important value to our students’ activity program.”

As part of his IB program and CAS classes, he is part of the MUN Executive Team. They organize internal MUN simulations for their classmates, where they act as delegates for countries. He also shows a lot of responsibility and sense of duty in his role as a “Big Brother”. As part of the “Big Brother/Big Sister” project, upper school students actively support younger ISR students in their everyday school life and regularly spend time together. Ms. Herda finally adds, “Ye Jun is in my German B HL class and I have known him since Grade 7, my first year teaching at ISR. I have taught him every year – with one exception. And I am definitely happy about this. Ye Jun is a very polite, nice, and funny student I really enjoy teaching. Being able to accompany him through middle and upper school has been great. I have seen a huge development – not only in his German language skills, but also as a person. I wish him all the best and will miss him and his classmates.”

We are very proud to spotlight Ye Jun, one of ISR’s many outstanding students!

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who, in line with this year’s theme, is striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if it is academic success, special commitment or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
