Shortridge High School strives to support citizens who think freely, possess intellectual vitality, and address needs and realities greater than themselves.
As members of the Shortridge Community, we strive to demonstrate these IB World Community traits in our daily interactions:
arrive to school and class on time
engage in the pursuit of learning independently and collaboratively
think thoughtfully about issues and ideas with local and global significance develop and demonstrate empathy, compassion, and respect
express ourselves―in person and online―in ways that advocate for the common good
dress in a professional manner to encourage learning
demonstrate citizenship and sportsmanship while participating in and/or attending activities
act with integrity and honesty with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere
apply critical and creative thinking skills to take responsible action and make reasoned, ethical decisions
follow all school and district regulations as outlined in the IPS Code of Conduct and applicable state and federal law
The IB program aims to develop internationally minded people who—recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet—help to create a better and more peaceful world.
