Student of the Quarter

This recognition is offered after 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters only. Each homeroom teacher will identify one or two students who exemplify one of the focus IB Learner Profiles for that quarter. Teachers will be encouraged to engage students in a dialogue around defining each trait. Students may give input to the teacher through a secret ballot to help identify those they believe that demonstrate these identified qualities. Teachers have the final say as to who will be chosen. Once the student is identified, the teacher will recognize the student in front of the class and share examples of why the student represents that learner profile. The goal of this program is to provide an opportunity to further educate all stakeholders about IB Learner Profiles.

Targeted Learner Profiles by Quarter

  • 2nd Quarter - Balanced, Caring, Communicator
  • 3rd Quarter - Principled, Knowledgeable, Reflective
