Learner Profile Trait for August ~ Principled

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 August is Principled. In August, we will highlight what it means to be Principled. What does it mean to act with principles?

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.

The Learner Profile Quote of the Day is:

“Stick to your principles, even if no one else is!”
