We are proud that we will be the world’s first special autism International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.

We believe these characteristics should be developed in all students regardless of neurodiverse or neuro-typical development. These attributes sit at the heart of our curriculum:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled

  • Open-minded

  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
