    INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM & Mission Statement

    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.

    Jefferson Elementary School educates each student to become critical life-long learners; embracing high academic achievement and contributing to the local & global community. Through our International Baccalaureate program, we nurture and inspire multilingual, respectful, global citizens to lead and create positive change.

    Our students are active participants in their education. They are encouraged to ask questions and take responsibility in their learning process. Our teachers work in a collaborative environment, enhancing the thematic topic of study with art, music, world language, technology, physical education and real-world scenarios.
