International Baccalaureate Mission:
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the IB works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
Kershaw Magnet School Mission:
Our mission will be met through joint collaborative efforts of the school staff, students, parents, and community to incorporate a rigorous academic program, emphasizing inquiry based instruction. Using a variety of assessments, continuous professional development and shared decision making we will structure a safe, nurturing, learning environment that will accept and respect the diversity of all individuals and promote academic excellence.
