Critical and Creative Thinking
Learners learn to question, interpret, and classify in order to develop logical, imaginative thinking. They learn to explore, analyze, and evaluate information; use it in problem solving; and then are challenged to articulate, revise, and defend their thinking.
Learners learn to listen, speak, read, write and interpret effectively as individuals and as members of cooperative groups. They become aware of how culture, art, music, dance, drama and sport serve as vehicles for self-expression in extending communication.
Learners develop an appreciation for the value, as well as the limitations of technology. They will learn to evaluate the environmental, cultural, and social impact of technological changes.
Personal and Social Values
Learners develop personal skills including goal setting, self-discipline, self-motivation, organization, and time management that contribute to a healthy self-esteem. In addition, learners are expected to extend consciousness beyond self in order to develop a grounded social values system based upon respect for self and others.
Glocal Awareness and Understanding
Learners acquire this through cultural sensitivity, and international appreciation and understanding. Learners develop an appreciation of the interdependent responsibility of nations, cultures and individuals.
Learners are encouraged to engage themselves in their intellectual and social environment, not only to enhance their school years but also to establish a pattern of involvement and inquiry that will extend into adult life.
Learners acquire environmental awareness through all requirements of study, applied projects, field trips and community service programs. Consequently, learners will develop a sense of balance between development and environmental protection.
