Recognised by prestigious universities globally including Oxford and Cambridge, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) nurtures the knowledge, skills and attitudes which empower students to excel and perform in university and their working careers.
THE IB MISSION STATEMENT
The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) develops 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 IBO works with schools, governments and international organisations 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 differences, can also be right.
THE LEARNER PROFILE
The students at SKIS demonstrate attributes of the learner profile through the following:
Knowledgeable: Students have excellent subject knowledge delivered by teachers in the classroom, this is reflective in their outstanding results.
Caring: Students show their caring side by working at a refugee school on Friday afternoons teaching Mathematics and English. This is part of our acclaimed CAS programme.
Reflective: Students consider the nature of knowledge and where it comes from in their Theory of Knowledge lessons: Who should we believe when it comes to statistics about Global Warming?
Inquirers: At SKIS we answer the big questions through inquiry in the classroom: "Is nature more powerful than man?"
Open – Minded: Students consider the perspectives of people from many different cultures and countries.
Principled: Students consider the morals and ethics of their decisions. Fundraising to help build a school in Cambodia has enabled them to develop their own ideas of right and wrong and who needs support in countries around the world.
