Promote Learning – Encourage Responsibility – Celebrate Diversity
We Promote Learning through inquiry-based teaching and learning with the International Baccalaureate Programmes, differentiating to meet individual needs in a contemporary, empowering and healthy learning environment for all students. We support holistic education through a balanced approach to disciplinary, transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and experiential learning. Our Definition of Learning supports this understanding further.
We Encourage Responsibility by creating an environment which develops a deep sense of personal, local and global awareness. We engage locally, nationally and internationally with issues of substance and take action to make a difference in our world, understanding citizenship and service as an expression of individual responsibility. We inquire into the topics of human rights, development, cooperation & governance; environmental awareness and sustainability; the role of peace education and conflict resolution in our world; and the interdependence of natural and human systems on our planet.
We Celebrate Diversity by valuing uniqueness, considering varied perspectives, respecting our differences and encouraging international mindedness in order to develop balanced world citizens. This includes opportunities for recognizing difference and unique perspectives in curricular and extra-curricular learning, as well as opportunities to foster mutual respect for the diversity of beliefs and values, and in ways of being as well as ways of knowing. This requires us to debate and freely inquire within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity, confidentiality and respect both in and out of the classroom setting.
