poster about IB  learner profile


"The IB's programs:

  • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
  • develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools
  • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
  • develop multilingual students.

IB students take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge itself is constructed

Our programs help IB students:

  • ask challenging questions
  • think critically
  • learn across disciplines
  • develop research skills proven to help them in higher education.

IB programs also encourage students to be active in their communities and to take their learning beyond academic study."
