This Month at Scott Elementary

September. 2022

The Learner Profile traits

As part of our counseling services and International Baccalaureate PYP program, we will be spotlighting a Learner Profile trait each month. These traits help our students become more globally minded and help put our PYP program into action. Each month, teachers will select a Student of the Month from their class who has demonstrated the trait at school.

To learn more about the Learner Profile and the International Baccalaureate program, please watch this 3 minute video:


Being open-minded means a student understands and appreciates their own culture and are open to the perspectives, values, and traditions of other individuals and communities.
