About Us » Mission


Our mission at Clissold School is to engage all students in a meaningful, educational experience in preparation for the unique challenges of the global environment. Through our various programs, students will become life-long learners that view the world through multiple perspectives. As an educational community, we will collaborate to design high quality instruction that offers an intellectually challenging curriculum with increased emphasis on problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, citizenship, technology, and community involvement.

As an IB World School, Clissold adopts the 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. (International Baccalaureate Organization, 2013)."
