PIERCE Officially a Candidate to Join the IB World School

Exciting news from the school-sphere, as PIERCE is working on the application procedures to be authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme beginning in September 2016.

PIERCE’s mission is to provide a holistic education, forming intellectually independent, morally responsible, and socially engaged global citizens. “Non ministrari sed ministrare” (“Not to be served but to serve”) defines both the institutional character and our aspiration for our students.

The PIERCE Learner Profile reflects the school’s reality, and includes among its fourteen points, ten attributes that are shared with the IB’s Learner Profile:

Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, Reflective, Democratic, Creative, Resilient, & Hard-working.
