EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY


At St. John’s International School, we define international education as a commitment to helping our students become what the International Baccalaureate terms “internationally minded people,” who, “recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.”

Furthermore, for our students to become truly internationally minded global citizens, we acknowledge the need for our community to be guided by the following principles.    

  1. St. John’s respects the cultural identity of every member of our community, through the provision of culturally appropriate and responsive education. 
  2. St. John’s provides an education that enables students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for them to actively participate in the global community. 
  3. St. John’s promotes the values of companionship, integrity and respect, which nurtures in our students the capacity to advocate for and contribute to intercultural understanding and solidarity religious groups and nations.
