IB Learner Profile Attribute: Balanced

The IB Learner Profile Balance aims to develop learners who are balanced. Our goal is to allow students to discover and understand the importance of balancing different aspects of their lives. Focusing on the intellectual, physical and emotional in order to achieve well being for themselves and others. We would like for our students to recognize their interdependence with other people and with the world in which they live.


IB students are active participants in a wide range of aspects of campus life, as well as focusing on their academic development.

Story Time

Petunia by Roger Duvoisin

Petunia, thinking she has a book must make her full of wisdom, proceeds to tall the other farm animals what they should do. A hilarious story that takes a peek into the concept of ego and how we need to maintain a balance of being humble amongst others, no matter if we know more than they do or not…..as is the case with this silly goose.
