In 2009 Lakeside Academy became an inclusive International Baccalaureate school, so that all students would benefit from the IB Framework for Teaching. The Middle Years Program (IBMYP) provides a framework which allows students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills for life in the 21st century. Principle aims of International Education:
  • to awaken the intelligence of students and teach them to relate the content of the classroom to the realities of the world outside
  • to further international understanding by fostering a global perspective
  • to establish curricula and diploma norms to fully understand issues and problems
  • to develop respect and understanding for a peaceful and productive future
