The IB Learner Profile

 

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success. They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them. Each of the IB's programs is committed to the development of students according to the IB learner profile.

 

The profile aims to develop learners who are:

 

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective
 
Teachers incorporate the IB Learner Profiles into their unit and lesson plans so that students can experience growth in these areas over time. Developing these attributes will help students become well-rounded, globally minded individuals.

Vista Heights Middle School is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Vista Heights Middle School believes is important for our students.

 

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
