Cypress Mission Statement
We believe in guiding students to become productive members of a changing global world and to reach towards their aspirations.
We do this through a standards-based, comprehensive program which embeds the Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate and balances units of inquiry and single subject teaching.
Our school values and supports learners in becoming skillful communicators, problem solvers and socially conscious citizens who believe themselves to be capable and able to mold their future as they reflect on their personal accomplishments and direct their own thinking.
IB Mission Statement
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 organization 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.
