The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
As a part of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, we also promote Six Core Values:
Student-Centered: We focus on the needs of every child.
Accountability: We take responsibility for and reflect on our impact on student outcomes.
Collaboration: We work together to support each other’s efforts to meet every student’s needs.
Equity: We honor diversity by addressing barriers to success for every student.
High Expectations: We challenge ourselves to inspire every student’s pursuit of greatness.
Integrity: We align our actions, beliefs and values to support every student.
