Learning principles

The teaching approach in the IB programmes is student centred. Teachers differentiate to cater for the different learning preferences of their students. Students are not ranked nor compared. Instead, students are motivated to work to individual learning targets. Debate and discussion forms part of the inquiry-based teaching and learning programme and much collaborative learning takes place.
