Teaching the IB Design Thinking Process
Mission Statement

The IB curriculum framework emphasizes student-driven inquiry. It encourages students to work on projects of their own imagination, take risks, and to become problem-solvers through design thinking and hands-on learning in graphics, design, architecture, engineering, filmmaking, programming, robotics, and more.

Our faculty ignite the spark of genius in every child and customize the IB educational journey for each student based on his or her passions and talents.

Preparing graduates for jobs of the future

Today’s graduates are entering a global world in which the rate of technological change is fast and furious, and the future of the workplace is yet unimagined. While tomorrow’s career paths remain uncarved, we can prepare students to embrace whatever opportunities await by teaching them skills that go beyond academics or mastering the latest technologies; brainstorming, creating, designing, collaborating, communicating, problem-solving, and innovating.

These entrepreneurial skills, coupled with flexibility, perseverance, resilience, and resourcefulness, are essential to success in the competitive marketplace and in life. We teach these skill sets and nurture these character traits within and beyond the classroom.

Cultivating
entrepreneurship through the IB

The International Baccalaureate, recognized as the “gold standard” worldwide in pre-university preparation, is the ideal framework for educating entrepreneurs.

With inquiry as the cornerstone of the curriculum, IB teachers champion independent thinking and empower students to drive their own learning, instilling confidence to go down their own paths and become risk takers.
