IB Schools In Dubai – IB Learner Profile
Top International British and IB Schools In Dubai
Kent College Dubai is a Top British Curriculum and IB school in Dubai. We offer multiple graduation pathways that are as unique as the individuals that attend our school. As an IB World School, we have adopted the IB Learner Profile in our Senior School. The IB Learner Profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these attributes, and others like them, can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national and global communities.
The aim of all IB Programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
