Attitudes of Excellence

Throughout the school year, your child’s teacher has emphasized JWE’s Attitudes of Excellence which are inclusive of the IB Attitudes and Learner Profile.


PYP learners develop and apply the following attitudes: appreciation, commitment, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, independence, integrity, respect and tolerance.

The Learner Profile is the end result of the daily implementation of these positive attitudes towards people, towards the environment, and towards learning. JWE students, community and staff are working to create a better world for tomorrow. At WE, all of us strive to be:

  • Inquirers:Our natural curiosity has been nurtured. We have acquired the skills necessary to conduct purposeful, constructive research. We actively enjoy learning and our love of learning will be sustained throughout our lives.

  • Thinkers: We exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to make sound decisions and to solve complex problems.

  • Communicators: We receive and express ideas and information confidently in a variety of modes. We work effectively and willingly with our peers.

  • Risk Takers: We approach unfamiliar situations without anxiety and have the confidence and independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. We are courageous and articulate in defending those things in which we believe.

  • Knowledgeable: We have spent time in school exploring themes which have global relevance and importance. In doing so, we have acquired a critical mass of significant knowledge.

  • Principled: We have a sound grasp of the principles of moral reasoning. We have integrity, honesty and a sense of fairness and justice.

  • Caring: We show sensitivity towards the needs and feelings of others. We have a sense of personal commitment to action and service.

  • Open-minded: We respect the views, values and traditions of other individuals and cultures, and we are accustomed to seeking and considering a range of points of view.

  • Balanced: We understand the importance of physical and mental balance and personal well-being.

  • Reflective: We give thoughtful consideration to our own learning and constructively analyze our personal strengths and weaknesses.

Deliberate time and thoughtful attention is given to teaching students this vocabulary and asking students  to reflect on their individual/class successes and areas for growth. Students are using the language in authentic, appropriate ways to acknowledge and celebrate themselves and each other (see examples below).
