9th Physics Class Tackles Engineering Problems

The 9th grade Physics students teamed up to tackle three engineering challenges in the Upper School Courtyard on Nov. 16. See a Photo Gallery of them building a house of cards to hold up a plastic duck, stacking blocks as high as they can, and holding up a stack of books with only note cards and tape!

11th Chemistry Tests Air Bags for Eggs

The 11th grade Chemistry class tested their “air bags” made of vinegar and baking soda by dropping them from the second floor into the US Courtyard on Nov. 16. See a Short Video and a Photo Gallery of the results, which were not so good for their egg “passengers”!

IB Highlights: Learner Profile Traits

The Upper School Courtyard has a new addition — the 10 International Baccalaureate (IB) Learner Profile traits have been added just under the 2nd floor railing. (See a Photo Gallery of the traits around the US Courtyard.) What are the IB learner profile traits?

As an IB school, we strive to develop learners who are:
• Inquirers
• Knowledgeable
• Thinkers
• Communicators
• Principled
• Open-minded
• Caring
• Risk-takers
• Balanced
• Reflective

The IB learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success. They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them. Check out this flyer to learn more about each of the IB Learner Profile Traits.
