IB Attitudes

The IB PYP Attitudes are a vital focus in the development of positive

 attitudes towards people, the environment, and learning. These are 

the day to day attitudes we use: appreciation, commitment, confidence,

 cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, 

independence, integrity, respect, and tolerance. These IB Attitudes

 are meant to be an explicit part of daily learning, modeled by both

 students and staff. These are woven into daily school life— the

 classroom, the cafeteria, at recess, etc. Students also reflect on the

 attitudes during learning experiences and assessments. When

 reinforced at home (or when reinforcing the positive attitudes that

 students learn at home and other places), these attitudes

 become second nature for children.
