Middle School students celebrate character development throughout the year. We focus on the IB Middle Years Program learner attributes of being inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. At the end of the year, students choose which attribute their peers have most exemplified and give reasons why. Each student is awarded with the trait that was most selected for him/her at (add this word) the ceremony in which this picture was taken. We’re very proud of the students for their character development and for their reflection on others’ traits.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
