     The International Baccalaureate Mission Statement
     
     
    The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
     
    To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. 
     
    These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their difference, can also be right. 
     
     
     
    The International Baccalaureate Learner Profile
     
     
    As IB learners we strive to be:
     
    Inquirers
    We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life. 
     
    Knowledgeable
    We develop and use conceptual understanding, exploring knowledge across a range of disciplines. We engage with issues and ideas that have local and global significance. 
     
    Thinkers
    We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions.
     
    Communicators
    We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.
     
    Principled
    We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
     
    Open-minded
    We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of  view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
     
    Caring
    We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.
     
    Risk-takers
    We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
     
    Balanced
    We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives - intellectual, physical, and emotional - to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognize our interdependence with other people and with the world in which we live.
     
    Reflective
    We thoughtfully consider the world and our own ideas and experience. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses in order to support our learning and personal development.
