IB Learner Profile Logo

IB Learner Profile 

The aim of the IB programme is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create better more peaceful world.   The IB Learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. The IB believes these attributes, and others like them can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities.  (ibo.org)

Here at Fred Lynn, our students and staff focus on what it means to be a community of life long learners. With the use of the IB Learner Profile, our students and staff use a common language to describe and identify behaviors of successful learners that strive to be Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, and Reflective.
