Hope, as conceptualised by Freire, is the desire and the awareness to make a contribution by facilitating progress and change, what Freire calls ‘the struggle’. At NAIS Pudong, our students at all levels are provided with a solid academic foundation. When they graduate they will undoubtedly be successful in their chosen fields of study and are certainly destined for prosperous futures. We hope that they carry this desire to create a better world and use the influence they will acquire to advocate, in whatever capacity they can, for a just and peaceful world. This is what it means to be a lifelong IB learner at NAIS Pudong.
The IB Diploma is widely recognised as the world’s leading pre-university Baccalaureate. At NAIS Pudong we have a long and proud history of equipping our students with the skills required to be academically and personally successful when they embark upon their tertiary education. The IB Diploma Programme is a powerful and transformative experience not only because it is academically rigorous, but also because of its broader focus on developing competent global citizens and life-long learners. It is certainly gratifying to be part of a school community that supports students to carry the spirit of international-mindedness and the learner profile with them wherever they go in future. And this will be our hope for a better future for us all and the valuable contribution our school community makes in the 21stcentury.
