We put great importance on the process of children thinking independently, starting from their natural curiosity. Students will discover various things, reflect on them, and eventually acquire the ability to cooperate with their peers and solve problems practically while considering various perspectives.
Eisugakkan Elementary School Inquiry Model
3Acquire the ability to
succeed in the world
The IB learner profile consists of ten attributes--Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, and Reflective, We believe that only those who possess these attributes will be able to embrace the diversity of cultures and languages and create a better world. Thinking and reflecting on themselves in their daily lives, in their studies, and in their interactions with others, the children will develop these ten attributes. We believe that our students can create a better world.
