IB Learner Profile Traits and Attitudes

Welcome to Lincoln! At the heart of the IB Primary Years Programme are the 10 Learner Profile Traits. In addition to the Learner Profile Traits, we will strive to model the 12 Attitudes of the IB Primary Years Program. These traits and attitudes will be talked about, recognized in ourselves and each other, and they will also be celebrated together. Here is a list of the traits and attitudes and what they will begin to mean to your child in day to day interactions at home and at school.
