Talent, The IB Learner Profile, and Approaches To Teaching and Learning (ATL)
GSO is a catalyst during a student’s time here, part of a longer journey of self-discovery. Encouragement of the personal exploration of one’s own interests takes place in a supportive social context in which others provide assistance. Dialogue and sharing is important; thus learning is not only student-centered but student-driven.
Each student is at the heart of our education, in the same way as every student is at the very center of the International Baccalaureate pedagogy. Our Mission stresses discovery, development, expansion and sharing of students’ personal talents.
Motivation – Relationships – Activities are the cornerstones of our education.
We strive to get to know every student really well and to learn from each of them. Fellow students, teachers, student advisors or mentors in the region may all contribute.
Gentium Schola Opitergium is called "International School of Talents" and offers a university preparatory programme which puts the individual with his or her own talents at the center of the learning process. The recognition, development and sharing of talent in a safe and caring environment is the very essence of this school community. In a mutually supportive social environment in which everyone - students, teachers, staff, and parents - is considered a learner, students are encouraged to develop themselves and to discover new talents.
In reference to talent, students' development will be considered in regular stages as well as on a continuous basis. This includes, amongst others, the following:
We know that many of our students will have varied interests and they may not be fully aware of their own potential talents. They many not yet anticipate what new interests and abilities they will acquire as students of GSO.
Within the region, GSO aims to identify artists, entrepreneurs, musicians, athletes, scientists, and other role models who will share their experiences with our students, further motivating them in pursuit of their own talents.
Our teachers, together with role models who are identified within the community for being extremely successful in specific fields, called MASTER OF TALENTS, will provide an environment in which to further existing talents as well as encourage the search for new ones.
