subjects. The ATL provide the foundation for independent learning
and encourage the application of their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar

communication and self management skills helps students learn how to learn.
Students are expected to
develop their character by engaging in a minimum 30 hours of thoughtful Service
as Action through community service. Students also complete
the Personal Project on a topic of their choice through
which they have the opportunity to demonstrate their growth as learners
and global citizens.
