Our IB Learner Characteristic For October Is Inquirer

Inquirers Slide The International Baccalaureate (IB) approach applies ten characteristics to describe an IB learner. As an IB World School, at Blair all students, staff and teachers strive to demonstrate the attributes of Inquirer, Thinker, Caring, Balanced, Knowledgeable, Open Minded, Risk taker, Communicator, Reflective and Principled. 

This "IB Learner Profile" also demonstrates how the IB approach is about much more than academic success. 

Each month at Blair one characteristic is highlighted. For the month of October we are focusing on Inquirer. 

As Inquirers:
"We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life." ibo.org

Blair is an IB World School with three (!) IB programs. The Middle Years Programme is all students grades 6-10. The Diploma Programme is offered for 11th and 12th graders, with the option of pursuing the full Diploma or individual course certificates. In the Career-related Programme, Health Careers Academy students integrate IB Diploma courses with their technical training and other requirements.
