The International School of Beijing (ISB) held six alumni reunions across China and North America over winter, bringing together more than 200 former students, teachers, and friends. The combined attendance at the reunions marked the largest in ISB's history.
ISB Head of School Tarek Razik and Deputy Head of School Mark Hardeman shared updates about the school with alumni at each event. They also showed videos that included greetings from current faculty members, an ISB Alumni Association promotional video, and another that highlighted personalized learning at the school.
The first gathering was held in Shanghai on November 17, with former elementary school assistant principal Greg Smith and former high school principal Paul Wood among special guests at the 25-alumni-strong event.
Hong Kong was the next destination on December 1, with ISB's incoming Head of School Patrick Hurworth, currently high school principal at Hong Kong International School, introducing himself to 35 alumni.
In North America, reunions were held in Los Angeles on January 15, with 40 alumni; Toronto on January 18, with 24 alumni; New York on January 20, with 50 alumni; and Boston on January 25, with 25 alumni.

Our next alumni event will be the annual ISB Alumni Weekend on May 25-27, 2017. The weekend includes a campus day, alumni dinner, and the graduation ceremony for our Class of 2017.
Of course, you don't need to attend an alumni reunion to stay connected with former classmates. Since the launch of the ISB Alumni Network last year, more than 800 current and former students, faculty, and parents have joined the social media platform.
The website is a hub for ISB memories with its photos from yesteryear as well as a forum to share personal milestones, such as weddings and births. Users can even post jobs to connect fellow alumni with professional opportunities.
With more than 25,000 page views to date and web and app versions, the ISB Alumni Network is your go-to source for the latest in our dynamic global community.
