As our students work to become better individuals, they also become better classmates, friends, and siblings. Due to the IB ethos and philosophy that is embedded into all that we do and our caring BIS community, our students ultimately equipped to better contribute to their communities and the world around them.
Our students are at the center of all we do at BIS. Beyond being scholars, athletes, and artists, BIS students are most importantly caring people. Our Values are at the core of our curriculum and are embodied by the IB Learner Profile, which encourages all learners in the BIS community to strive to be:
We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives, intellectual, physical, and emotional, to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognize our interdependence with other people and with the world in which we live.
