Mission Bay High School
Vision and Mission
Mission Bay High School is a community of:
internationally minded people that value the world as the broadest context for learning and develops conceptual understanding across a range of subjects;
inquiry-based learning that engages students to think critically, express creativity, reflect, and;
service learning that encourages students to become active community members in the service they perform and in their character development as global citizens.
Mission Bay High School aims to develop young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. As an International Baccalaureate World School, we encourage our students to be active, compassionate and lifelong learners that strive to be:
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.
We develop and use conceptual understanding, exploring knowledge across a range of disciplines. We engage with issues and ideas that have local and global significance.
We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions.
We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.
We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and the world around us.
We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives- intellectual, physical, and emotional- to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognize our interdependence with other people and the world in which we live.
We thoughtfully consider our world and our own ideas and experience. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses in order to support our learning and personal development.
