As an IB World School, we engage our students in units of inquiry that are relevant, challenging and globally significant. Our students are inquirers who acquire knowledge and skills and they are thinkers who search for deeper meaning and understanding.
In this first unit, students are introduced to the IB Learner Profile and attitudes. Students develop social and interpersonal skills that help them to engage in the classroom community. Students observe similarities and differences between themselves and their peers.
Students explore the concepts of cycles, patterns and changes. They inquire into seasonal changes, the mark of time, and states of matter.
In this artistically focused unit, students explore art forms as they relate to nature, ecosystems and their inhabitants.
Students learn about the life cycles of plants, their uses and how they are used as resources. Students also explore the concepts of living and non-living.
An inquiry into our neighborhood and the people in it. Students explore how and why people are interdependent and help to make the community run smoothly. Students learn how they can be productive members of the community.
Our final unit allows students to explore the concept of being a good citizen. Students apply their new knowledge to investigate the rules in a community and our personal responsibility to make the community a better place.
