4What is the IB Programme? “The IB is not just about belonging to a school; it is about belonging to a world network of like-minded people who have a common experience and the capacity to change the world for the better.”-Ian Hill, Deputy Director General of the International Baccalaureate Organization, Supertest, 2005HistoryMagnetCourse Work
5IB Learner ProfileIB Programmes aim to develop internationally minded people who are striving to become:InquirersKnowledgeableThinkersCommunicatorsRisk-takersPrincipledCaringOpen-mindedWell-balancedReflectiveThe IBO aims to develop well-rounded students. Every class and every lesson aim to develop all of these skills in each one of our students.One characteristic that we like to point out is well-balanced. There is a common misconception that in order for an IB student to be successful in the program they must have “no life”. In fact, most of our students are involved in a number of activities including sports and clubs at school as well as activities in their community. The CAS requirement further instills the concept of a well-balanced student by having the student expand their knowledge outside of the classroom through creative, active and service activities.
