Learner Profile Trait for January ~ Reflective

Big picture

Barry Goldwater is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. As such we aspire to fulfill the traits embodied in the Learner Profile. Each month we will highlight and celebrate one of these traits.

The Learner Profile trait for January is 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.

The Learner Profile Quote of the Day is:

“The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective - people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.”

Deepak Chopra


PARKING Reminder: Students, please be a good neighbor and do not park in the Medical Plaza or neighboring business parking lots and do not block business driveways. Your car will be towed! You can purchase a pass for the student parking lot in the Bookstore.
