The Learner Profile and related Attitudes are the “heart” of IB. Beyond the realm of academics, the IB program uses the Learner Profile and Attitudes to create well-rounded, well-equipped, globally-minded individuals. Teachers connect the Learner Profile and Attitudes to the curriculum, discuss their meaning and provide students with feedback on how they are developing each attribute. 

The profiles and attitudes will be discussed all year within classrooms, but we will be highlighting one of each for a short period throughout the year school-wide to ensure that they are understood and internalized by all of our students. See below for the schedule of our Attitude and Profile focus!
