Throughout the school year, Jean Childs Young Middle School (located in the Mays cluster) will recognize students from each grade level who go above and beyond to exemplify these International Baccalaureate (IB) learner profile words of the month.
“The learner profile unites us all with a common focus on the whole person, as a lifelong learner,” wrote Dr. John Beliard, IB specialist at Young Middle School. “It applies to us all – student, teacher, parent or administrator – for we are all continually learning.”
IB is a signature program for our North Atlanta, Mays, Therrell and Jackson clusters and is offered in over 4,000 schools in more than 150 countries. IB describes an approach to curriculum and instruction that prepares students to be inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. Because the curriculum is globally relevant, rigorous and consistent in its approach across schools, IB exam scores are accepted for college credit throughout the world, making IB students more competitive for scholarships and college access.
