Jordan's fellow ninth grade classmates awarded her the honor of "most principled". She has been awarded this honor each year for all of her school years in the IB programme. To be principled is to act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of an individual, groups and communities. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them.
All IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, reflective, and principled.
The aim of the International Baccalaureate program is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
I personally think all students K-12 should be afforded the opportunity to be a part of an IB program.
