    Learner Profile Trait for October

    Barry Goldwater is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school.  As such we aspire to fulfill the traits embodied in the Learner Profile. Each month we will highlight and celebrate one of these traits.

    The Learner Profile trait for October is Inquirer.  We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life.

    The Learner Profile Quote of the Day is:  

    Thirst was made for water. Inquiry for truth.  C.S Lewis

    See Something, Say Something

    The Safe School Hotline number is 623-376-3262
