在伍德斯托克音乐节的认证报告中, the IB noted a number of areas deserving of special commendation.

The wide variety of subjects offered at DP level and the importance on language learning, 包括母语, 是赞扬. The 想象力中心 was described as “CFI a very unique initiative of the school and worthy of commendation”, and the library as “a hub for students and teachers to collaborate, work independently and access diverse resources”.
