Two American School of Milan Graduates Receive Perfect IB Diploma scores

At ASM, we are proud of the fact that our students annually achieve IB success. However the elusive 45 sometimes presents a challenge to even our brightest stars. We are always thrilled and very proud when we have one perfect 45, on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. This year we are delighted to announce that two students from the American School of Milan (ASM) achieved the coveted 45 point score.  It is a pleasure to highlight these wonderful achievements of two of our finest students.


Edoardo Rundeddu and Giovanna Pinciroli, valedictorian and salutatorian respectively of the ASM Class of 2017, made ASM history and joined only 210 other students (out of 159,400 around the world taking the exams in May 2017) to achieve a perfect score. They led their class at ASM, supported by 10 other ASM students who earned a 40 or higher on their May 2017 IB exams. 

Each is currently attending university in the USA. Edoardo headed to Northwestern University  and Giovanna is now a student at  Stanford University. This was the first time they began a school year at a separate school, having attended middle school together before joining ASM for grades 9-12. These years were marked by continuous encouragement and a healthy competition between them, while encouraging the success of their classmates through their inspired academic leadership.  We know that they will continue to be leaders in their chosen paths, drawing on their inquisitive spirits and ASM preparation.

ASM Director, Maureen O. Madden commented:  “This success is a testament to the commitment of these students, their families and the entire ASM community for creating a positive and nurturing environment and continuous opportunities for growth in which our students may thrive. Edoardo and Giovanna are model ASM students who have always been committed to achieving their dreams and becoming more!”
