We believe that students learn best when they lead their own learning and are truly engaged in the process. When you visit our classrooms you will see our students learning by doing, exploring the limits of their curiosity, teaching each other, and most importantly, having fun!
We educate the whole child and understand that developing positive attitudes toward learning is even more important than acquiring skills and knowledge. Students work with teachers to develop the traits of the IB Learner Profile:
“The most important attitude that can be formed is that of desire to go on learning.”-John Dewey (1998). “Experience and Education", Kappa Delta Pi
