Empowering Tomorrow's Global Citizens: Seven Peaks School's IB Journey

In the heart of Bend, Oregon, Seven Peaks School stands as a beacon of educational excellence, proudly embracing the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework. As Bend's premier PYP (Primary Years Programme) and MYP (Middle Years Programme) IB school, Seven Peaks is dedicated to providing a comprehensive education that spans from preschool to 8th grade. At the core of our mission is a commitment to nurturing academic excellence and cultivating global citizenship.

The IB framework, a philosophy deeply embedded in our curriculum, aligns seamlessly with our values. As expressed on the IBO.org website, "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." This resonates and aligns with our vision for education at Seven Peaks.

Our commitment to academic excellence is evident in every facet of our curriculum. The IB programs encourage students not only to acquire knowledge but also to apply it critically and reflect on their learning journey. We believe that an education rooted in inquiry-based learning fosters a deep understanding of subjects and instills a passion for lifelong learning.

The emphasis on global citizenship is a cornerstone of our educational philosophy. The IB framework propels Seven Peaks students beyond traditional boundaries, challenging them to explore diverse cultures, languages, and shared knowledge. This intentional focus aligns with the IB's mission to create a more interconnected and peaceful world.

According to the IBO.org website, the IB aims to develop students who "understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right." This principle guides us in fostering an environment where diversity is celebrated, and curiosity about the world is encouraged. By embracing this mindset, Seven Peaks students are not just learners; they are global citizens equipped with the skills to navigate an increasingly interconnected world.

In a world facing multifaceted challenges, the IB framework grounds Seven Peaks School students, providing a steadfast global perspective. As we continually explore the question: what more can we learn from the rich tapestry of diverse cultures, languages, and shared knowledge? our students are empowered to be the change-makers of tomorrow.

At Seven Peaks School, we extend our gratitude to the International Baccalaureate for inspiring and guiding our educational journey.

Together, we are shaping the leaders, thinkers, and innovators who will contribute to a more peaceful and harmonious world. Join us in this transformative experience, where education goes beyond the classroom walls and prepares students to be catalysts for positive change on a global scale.
