"Our mission is to empower all of our students to be successful and responsible in a nurturing and diverse learning community, so that they can achieve their full potential in a changing world. In harmony with the ideals of the IB Learner Profile and the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we aim for students to be inquiring, inspired, and involved lifelong learners."
The school works hard to provide a learning environment through structured inquiry, involving the students, so they are inspired to achieve their individual potential.
