The IB Learner Profile
The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. Our learners accomplish this by demonstrating the IB Learner Profile, 10 attributes valued by IB World schools.
As IB Learners, Stokes students strive to be:
Inquirers * Knowledgeable * Thinkers * Communicators * Principled * Open-minded * Caring * Risk-takers * Balanced * Reflective
The IB Mission Statement
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
An International Program
The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. Through the development of traits and attitudes to learning, IB students successfully engage with people in an increasingly globalized and rapidly changing world.
Our curriculum is a hands-on, student-centered curriculum that allows students to engage in meaningful activities, collaborate with their peers, and ask meaningful questions to solve real-life problems. Stokes School scholars learn how to develop independence and take responsibility for their education. They learn how to establish personal values that help them understand the importance of cultural diversity and social justice.
The IB Program
Stokes School offers the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program for grades PK3-5.
IB schools exist across the globe and encourage knowledgeable scholars who care about the world in which they live in and to want to learn more about the world’s people. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that the Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School believes is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Programme). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
