Learner Profile Trait for September

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 that we will focus on for the month of September is Balanced.  We work to maintain healthy relationships and a healthy lifestyle.  We focus on mind, body, and emotions.

The Learner Profile Quote of the Day is:  "Strive not to be a success but rather to be of value"
