The IB Learner Profile aims to develop students who are inquirers. Students who are inquirers nurture their curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. They know how to learn independently and with others. Inquirers learn with enthusiasm and sustain their love of learning throughout life.


If you see your scholar demonstrating inquiring, please email Ms. Hanza at hanza.leah@franklin-academy.org so we can celebrate your scholar!
