IB's Learner Profile

At Kristiansand International School, we believe in the power of education to shape not only young minds but also compassionate and responsible global citizens. We emphasis an understanding of the essential attributes outlined in the International
Baccalaureate (IB) Learner Profile. These attributes serve as the cornerstone of personal development and prepare students to thrive in an interconnected world.

The IB Learner Profile Attributes

The IB Learner Profile consists of ten attributes that reflect a rounded approach to education, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional, and social growth. These attributes guide our teaching philosophy and curriculum development, ensuring that
students graduate with more than just knowledge - they possess a well-rounded education helping to ensure their future well-being of our students and our global community.

IB Approaches to Learning skills

At Kristiansand International School, education goes beyond traditional classroom learning. We are dedicated to nurturing well-rounded students who not only excel
 academically but also possess the critical skills needed to thrive in our world. Our approach focusses on the holistic development of our students through the IB
Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills.

What Are IB ATL Skills?

IB ATL skills are the essential toolkit of thinking, communicating, self-management, research and social skills that enable students to become effective learners,
confident problem solvers, and active contributors to society. These skills integrate every aspect of our curriculum, ensuring that students develop the intellectual and practical capabilities required for success in school, career, and life.
